Ball Rolling / Bouncing

This is a fun exercise to do with your child. Be aware that this might either be a stimulating or a calming exercise for your child. You need to try it out and see if it stimulates or calms your child down.

Ball rolling

Take a big exercise ball and have your child push the ball up a flight of stairs. Make sure you are behind your child while your child is going up the stairs just in case they lose their balance.

Ball bouncing

Take a small soft ball or a big exercise ball. Sit your child on top of the ball and bounce your child. Gently but make your child bounce. This can also be done on a Rody or any other toy you can bounce on.
