  • wobbly cushion – helps kids focus in class :)

    $23.00

    It can be really hard for children to sit still and remain focused for long periods of time, even more so for children who are neuro-diverse, and for kinetic learners. These wabbly balance cushions are a great resource for the classroom and home, to help your little one remain on task. Plus they’re super fun – and who said learning can’t be fun?! (Some guy …. I don’t know).

    My daughter has one at her kindy and she loves it.

    Wabbly balance cushions are also a great way to help children with sensory processing disorders improve balance and coordination skills and help them alleviate fears of unsteady/uneven surfaces.

    TARATA Balancing Act Dinosaurs – Colour

    Hand
    made from farm forested timber, these fun puzzles will challenge your
    skills, dexterity and patience as you try and balance them.  It’s simply
    a matter of holding your tongue in the right place! Each set comes
    attractively gift boxed,  with full instructions and a challenging
    configuration card showing about 20 of the literally 100’s of possible
    ways of balancing each set, and for even more fun sets can be combined
    so you can make towers reaching the sky!  In fact we’ve balanced over 20
    Dinosaurs together (actually they were hanging off a shelf) and we’ve
    received photos from enthusiasts who’ve balanced more!

    • A fun game of skill for creative minds
    • For children and adults
    • Hundreds of Balancing possibilities
    • Sets combine for more fun
    • A great educational game
    • Hand made from a single block of timber.

     
    ·         Balancing
    Animals are a fun game of skill for both children and adults. 
    Different age groups will use them in different ways.  Young children
    may just stack them one on the other, or play with the animals
    separately.  Older children will be able to recognise the different
    shapes and do the configurations.  As play develops they will try their
    own configurations and look for praise from adults for their
    accomplishments.

     
    ·         Balancing
    Animals are fun to balance while teaching and improving hand-eye
    coordination, problem solving skills, patience and perseverance, shape
    recognition, plan reading, minor motor skills, colour recognition as
    well as giving an enjoyable tactile experience.

    ·         Children
    will learn about the physics of gravity, leverage, fulcrums,  friction
    etc as well as experiencing the tactile benefits of touching and playing
    with timber.

    ·         Adults
    will usually try to do all the configurations, and then develop their
    own.  In group play they may race to see who can balance the set the
    quickest, or who can build the highest tower or the widest stack. 
    Challenges of building on top of the smallest animal or using each
    animal as a starting point will ensue.

    ·         We
    have suggested only a few of the hundred of configurations possible
    with each set and Balancing Animals are able to be combined with other
    sets (either of the same style or different styles) to build large
    configurations.  This can be a lot of fun as well as a great challenge.

     
    ·         When
    people are finished playing with Balancing Animals they can be placed
    on a shelf or mantle to look fun, ready for the next time!  Some people
    like to make a new configuration each day!

     

    Playing with Balancing Animals:

     

    Gives Enjoyment of challenge and the satisfaction of success

     

    Enhances Understanding of the laws of physics such as gravity, leverage, fulcrums, weight and dimension.

             and what’s more they’re fun!
