Happy Favorite Toys Tuesday! Today we highlight a “toy” that you typically see in our clinics-a balance beam! We use these for so many reasons. The traditional use of walk across without losing balance is fun-but there are so many more games to be had! You can line up objects on the beam, then stand on one leg to knock them over. You can walk one foot one, one foot off the beam. You make your legs like a triangle and walk around/over the beam. You can jump over it. And, you can combine all of these to have an amazing obstacle course!

Guess what? You can now have one for home! They can be used inside or outside, and are made in soft and foldable versions for safety. Here are some examples below. Enjoy!
