What are Gross Motor Skills

Gross motor skills require larger full body movement. These skills help with everyday functions such as sitting, walking, standing, running and jumping. Gross motor skills require the large muscles of the body to be used in a coordinated manner. Tasks such as bouncing, jumping, running and crawling are all activities which develop gross motor skills. Some children with special needs may have challenges with gross motor skills.  

How can I help my child’s gross motor skills ?

You can encourage your child’s gross motor skills by engaging in playful activities that encourage the movement of the body. Gross motor toys such as the Rainbow bug allow the use of muscles. This is an openhanded toy that helps and develops various skills. I can be used for crawling, climbing and rocking.
