Make walking on a line even more fun with these two fun tweaks. Your toddler or preschooler will love these two simple line walking activities!
With two kids in special education and developmental therapies, Member of the Month Babi started searching. She was looking for hands-on ways to support her children at home.
Enter The Activity Room!
“My kids were in speech therapy, occupational therapy, and special ed,” explained Babi. “So I was always searching and looking for things to help them.”
The Activity Room makes hands-on learning really easy and connects nicely to what Babi’s kids are doing at school.
“I do the activities that me and the therapist are working on, may it be muscle tone or sensory,” she said.
Whatever is being done in the therapies, Babi searches the weekly activity plans for connections. If it’s not there, she dives back into the Archives to pull up a different idea.
Then, she adds the new activities to her printed collection to grab-and-go in the future.
“On The Activity Room, I find plenty to help them,” she shared. “I normally just print and laminate all the activities and keep it in a file.”
Before joining The Activity Room, Babi was unsure about trying new activities.
“Sometimes, I would see an activity and be like, ‘Wow. That kid did it that way,'” shared Babi. “If I did that activity and my kid did it differently, I thought I did it wrong.”
Now, Babi is full confidence as she explores and learns alongside her children in The Activity Room.
“After The Activity Room, I love seeing how they do the same activity and the results are all different,” Babi explained. “They’re different kids. They don’t have to do it the same way!”

Two Simple Line Walking Activities:
Walking on a line is one of my go-to activities! This is a big, big favorite with my kids!
Simple line walking activities are great for building balance and coordination. Adding in some fun twists can pull in color matching, counting, or other skills, too!
I love because it helps them with OT and I can make this activity more or less challenging change it up. I can also make one activity into at least 10 different ones.
One thing we’ve done is use an egg on a spoon and have them walk the line. This works on balance and coordination.
You can substitute any round object, like a ball or plastic pretend-food orange, for the actual egg.
I also might give them a bowl of Legos that match with the colors of the tape.
Then, I have them pick a Lego piece and walk the same color line. When we walk all the Lego pieces to the end we just sit and build.
So much fun!!!
