Brain Gym Exercises

The link between kinesthetic learning and physical interaction with the environment when children learn using “hands-on” materials and tools is a strong one!  That's why we here at Kinetic Kids are stunch advocates of having our patients benefit from very specific physical activities that have been shown to improve a child's learning capabilities.

Here are a couple  Brain gym exercises that help develop cross midline skill:

  • Star jumps which also require child to cross his or her legs
  • Feet shoulder width apart, stretch arms on the side parallel to the ground. Children touch left toes with tips of right hand fingers keeping hands and legs straight and visa versa.
  •  “Scissors” exercise with straight arms
  • Close eye, stretch arms parallel to the ground and take turn touching nose with the tip of the fingers of one hand  at a time
  • Feet shoulder width apart, stretch arms on the side parallel to the ground. Children reach for invisible object with one arm at a time from the opposite side of the body.
