The vestibular system is the first of the sensory systems to develop in uterus. This fun roll, crawl, and jump activity provides vestibular input and can be easily done at home.
Place the apples (or any other objects) on one end of the room.
Instruct the child to pick up one apple and lay flat on the ground or on a blanket.
Ask the child to roll 5 times, crawl through the tunnel, and jump 10 times on the trampoline, then put the apple in the basket.
Support your child by monitoring his arousal level, as vestibular input can be alerting. Start slow, take breaks as needed, ask the child if he wants to continue or stop and if needed add proprioception input.
If you don’t have a tunnel, you can have your child crawl under the table or just on the ground.
If you don’t have a trampoline, ask the child to jump over a pillow or just jump in place.
