Key Areas developed:

    • Core Stability
    • Hand Strength

The swing is a popular playground equipment recommended by occupational therapy for core stability.  The swing encourages your child to use his core muscles especially with the back and forth action of pumping himself on the swing.

The squeeze action of a spray bottle strengthens the muscles of the hand especially those important for holding a writing tool comfortably.  This activity comes with high fun and giggles factor.
