As children age, their gross motor abilities continue to develop and improve. Children rely on gross motor skills to engage in physical play, and the staff have now implemented new activities to support this. Staff from Tops Winchester, Tops Poole and Tops Newport have made some new fantastic new equipment for the children to explore.
Lengths of ribbon were fed through an empty bottle and attached to 2 hoops. The children are able to use the hoops to make the bottle go up and down.
This activity helps with gross motor skills as well as something fun to play with. Gross motor skills are movements that involve using the large muscles of the body.
