This is hands-down, one of Barbara's favorite activities (and toys, if you call it a toy).
Barbara, if you didn't know, is our resident Occupational Therapist. And while OT's typically comment on Fine Motor development, Barbara grabbed this one and made it her own.
Here's why Barbara loves it:
- Fun is just a Hop, Skip and Jump away! The Hopscotch Rug teaches children to count while getting them moving.
- What a great way to improve coordination. Don't believe it? Try it for yourself. Hopping, bending, picking up markers on one leg, turning and hopping back. And all without touching any lines. Hey dad, make sure to bend at the knees!
- I love the hopscotch rug because it takes a classic Outdoor Game and moves it indoors for year-round fun.
- And, I am a sucker for a cool design and would put this in my girls room as a great decoration.
- Good luck!
Developmental Hint: If you didn't already, please watch Barbara's video on hopping, balancing and more - look for the yellow Learning Video Tab above. You'll be glad you did.'
