A backyard balance beam is super simple!
Grab some scrap wood from the garage or shop and lay out in the lawn.
[If you have clean boards, bring it inside for an indoor walk the plank activity, an idea from No Time For Flash Cards.]
Add corners where you like, make a maze if you please.
[Or one simple piece of board is enough, too.]
Set up is as simple as that.
Even more simple: the activity.
Walk the line!
Walk your way across the boards, and learn a very important physical skill.
I think this balancing practice might do Henry a lot of good in preparing for a real bicycle! What do you think?
What other ways are there to practice balance?
Henry is 3 years old.
