The goal of this week focuses on using your hands and arms to shake your blanket in order to make animals or balls bounce.
Growing My Skills
Place favorite animals or balls on top of blanket or bedsheet.
Hold the blanket on one side while your child holds the opposite side.
Shake and lift the blanket up and down to make the animals or balls bounce.
Can try in different positions: criss-cross sitting, kneeling, tall kneeling, standing.
Have a sibling or other adult hold other side while your child army crawls underneath the blanket for another “circus act.”
Can add an element of tug-of-war between you and your child with the blanket for more strengthening of hand grasp, shoulders, and core.
