"There are plenty of ways to experience vestibular movement on a playground, but what about at home? Try these fun activities with kids of all ages to promote their skill development and comfort and confidence in the world!" Some great ways to get moving at home from Kids Master Skills!A child's vestibular sense provides information about how the world is moving around him and about how he is moving within the world. Housed in the inner ear, it tells kids whether they are balanced or about to fall, what direction they are moving, and what speed they are traveling. The vestibular sense helps them to right themselves and hold their heads and bodies steady.To promote balance and coordination, a child must experience vestibular movement. Opportunities for just-right vestibular movement depends on a child's abilities and comfort and are important for all kids. It is a natural drive for children to crave vestibular movement many times during the day.There are plenty of ways to experience vestibular movement on a playground, but what about at home?
