Gross Motor: Balance Cushion

Balance Cushion


The balance cushion is a new addition at our house. It came recommended by the OT that Mary’s is seeing. So we are giving it a try! This is becoming part of the “Sensory Diet”. Which I will admit is something new for me. I have a few months left to learn a lot in order to take care of the sensory needs.

Balance Cushion

The brand we got has two different sides to it and is called balance cushion. Yes, there are 10 colors and I picked black so there would be less fighting over them. Everything we do on the cushions we use both sides of it.

For the Balance cushion we have been doing different things. Mary likes to sit on them when she is doing work.

She does walking across the balance cushions on both sides. This is harder than you think. She often would rather run than walk. We do this as slow as possible.
