Red Light, Green Light Go – Stretchy Bands
A few weeks ago, The Inspired Treehouse released a fantastic blog post all about how they found the stretchy band/connect-a-band to be an new and useful tool for them. Below is an excerpt with video. Make sure to check out their blog, always new and creative ideas shared there.
Running Against Resistance – Also great for strengthening and proprioception, have your kiddo get in the Connect-a-Band while you hold the opposite side still. Have her walk away from you forward or backward or even sideways. Have her keep walking until she can’t go any further and then ask her to control the speed at which she comes back to you.
The Connect-a-Band will try to pull her fast but can she walk slowly? Try a game of red light, green light (see below)!
