My boys are home from school for Christmas break, and I need to come up with some activities to keep us all from getting cabin fever. While the two are enjoying “crash pad” now, I know it will get old soon, so I came up with this variation.
Instead of Ethan and James taking turns running headlong into the bean bags on the couch, they take turns sitting in a laundry basket and pushing each other into the bean bags. The “heavy work” of pushing James gives Ethan the proprioceptive feedback his muscles and joints need.
Hopefully these two activities will help keep our house from turning into a wrestling arena during holiday downtime.
