Animal Walks – Great Motor and Sensory Development

I am a great fan of animal walks.  Kids love them and they help develop so many skills.  When I ran across this blog post, I had to share.

“Gross motor skills are such an important part of the healthy development and children of all ages. In fact, gross motor activities not only get the kids moving and active and allow them to release much needed energy, they also are responsible for helping children regulate their sensory needs. One of the easiest ways to include proprioceptive and vestibular input on a daily basis in our home is with Animal Walks.”
