Homemade Balance Beam

homemade balance beam
Activities like this are insanely easy to do , and so beneficial. Using a balance beam is a great gross motor activity that of course encourages development of balance but it also is fantastic at confidence building, and you don’t need to go to a gym class to do all that!

  1. Gather your materials. I am using a left over 2 x 4 my husband had in the garage. I made sure it was smooth before bringing it inside.
  2. I popped it on my rug and that’s it !
  3. We pretended to be pirates walking the plank, sneaky foxes on our tippy toes and played follow the leader all using this little piece of wood.
Sometimes the very simplest things are the most fun !
