Do you want to improve your child’s trunk and upper body strength, hand use, and manipulation skills? Use the Upper Body and Core Strength Fun Deck® to teach controlled use and stability of a child’s trunk, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, and fingers. These skills build an important foundation to help children complete everyday tasks successfully. The content cards present a developmental progression of movements (unilateral and bilateral) focusing on trunk and shoulder use, coordination activities, and fine motor skills.
This Fun Deck® includes 52 double-sided cards. The card front presents an upper body activity with a large picture illustration, and the other side describes the movement activity with a smaller picture. It also includes four additional content cards providing game ideas, instructions, and a list of activity titles. The 52 cards measure 3″ x 5″ and come in a colorful tin.
