For all children gross motor activities are important but even more so for children with Down syndrome. Children with Down syndrome are usually born with very low muscle tone which means they have to work extra hard to work up those muscles.
I try to daily do some gross motor activity with Adeline. Here are a few of our favorites.
Walking The Plank
DIY Therapy Equipment
Our Favorite Gross Motor Toys
Three Ways To Sort Colors
Crib Mattress and Gross Motor

Gross motor activities can be fun and beneficial for your child. What are some of your favorite?
