Product Code: 1861
These river stones help to improve movement control, visual distance estimation, coordination and balance, all through a fun course. Use your imagination to arrange these small triangular slopes to vary the level of difficulty. The little ones often use their hands and as they get older they will move from one stone to the next, adapting their steps so that their feet reach the platform. Older children will work on their balance by placing their feet at an angle on the stones, jumping from one stone to another or spacing the stones so that it is more difficult to keep their feet off the ground.
This activity also helps to strengthen sensory integration. The child uses the vestibular system to balance and hold onto the river stones. They will use their sense of touch to feel where to place their foot. In an attempt to control the way they place their foot, children use their sense of proprioception to tell them how much force to apply and how much range of motion to expect in order to successfully move. Once the game is over, the stones will fit together perfectly for discreet storage.
