Gross Motor

Developing gross motor skills requires lots of movement, which is why play is so vital to a child's development.
Gross motor skills are used to organize and carry out actions or movements with the large muscles of the body. Gross motor skills are dependent on muscle tone and strength and use muscles in the arms, legs and core. All body movement is dependent on gross motor skills. Sitting, crawling, standing, cruising and walking are examples of the progression of gross motor development and are followed by the ability to run, climb, kick, jump and throw.

Developing gross motor skills requires lots of movement, which is why play is so vital to a child's development. Gross motor weaknesses can affect a child's ability to move easily, to participate in physical games with other children, to sit straight in a classroom or write on a chalkboard. Children who are struggling with gross motor skills will often find fine motor skills challenging as well. Improving gross motor skills from bi-lateral and hand eye coordination to spatial orientation and midline crossing can greatly improve a child's health, learning, and confidence.

Toys that help develop gross motor skills include:
