Gross motor skills are essential for a child’s development.
These skills involve using the large muscles of the body, and they help children with movement and coordination.
Gross motor development is critical to balance, coordination, and connection to other body functions.
For this activity, we used a large, cardboard “bat” to hit open a shark pinata.
We used our gross motor skills to manipulate the “bat” and hit the pinata.
This was the favorite activity of the week. Everyone had so much fun and enjoyed laughing with their friends!
