Balance and coordination work hand in hand. Balance is the ability to maintain a controlled body position while performing tasks or activities.
Children need the ability to maintain controlled positions during both static (still) and dynamic (moving) activities.
Having good balancing skills will increase children’s confidence in gross motor activities (e.g., playing on the playground, running, jumping), increase their ability and confidence to engage in physical activities, and promote fine motor skills (e.g., writing, drawing and cutting).
Balance boards, swings and trampolines all help to promote balance in a fun and engaging way.
