How Bean Bag Activities Develop Movement Skills

Did you know that bean bag activities help children develop movement skills? Yes! That’s why they are perfect for music, PE, home school and preschool movement activities. Keep reading to learn why bean bag activities are important child development activities.

HOW BEAN BAG ACTIVITIES DEVELOP MOVEMENT SKILLS

Bean bags are easier to use than a ball because the child can hold onto it tightly.

I’m sharing some of the basic reasons why bean bag activities are important child development activities because they develop movement skills.

Take a look at all of the types of movement and skills that are strengthened by doing bean bag activities.

BALANCE– either in a stationary position or moving.

COORDINATION– getting the arms and legs to work together.

HAND-EYE COORDINATION– eye following the path of the bean bag helps with following words in written text.

CROSSING THE MIDLINE TO MAKE BRAIN CONNECTIONS– movement across the midpoint of the body.

MANIPULATIVE SKILLS– help to give or receive force to and from objects to achieve an outcome.

OBJECT CONTROL SKILLS– The use of an object to perform a task either sending it away or receiving.

LOCOMOTOR SKILLS– when crawling, walking, marching, jumping, running, galloping, sliding, leaping, hopping and skipping.

NON-LOCOMOTOR SKILLS– stability skills moving the limbs or body parts when bending, stretching, pushing, pulling, swaying, twisting, and balancing.

As you can see, bean bag games can incorporate all of the important movement skills.

MUSIC ACTIVITIES WITH BEAN BAGS

That’s why I’ve put together several bean bag activity resources that you can use in your music and movement activities.
