Here at Fit and Fun Playscapes, we love to innovate. The creation of new sensory path designs is a passion of ours, and so we’re pleased to announce a brand-new line. Introducing Sensory Sidekicks!
Sensory Sidekicks brings our cutest pals ever into the sensory path space. Let your kids jump and hop with our Tree Hopscotch, Frog Set, and Leap Frog Word; spring left and right with our Left-Right Ice Cream Cross-Midline. In addition, tip-toe with our Tiptoe Octopus or hang out with our Sidekick Buddies. It’s a sensory path party!
Developed with adapted PE teachers and occupational therapists, our Sensory Sidekicks line is just the newest addition to our extensive Super Stickers™ sensory path products. Now that the summer season is officially on us (the summer solstice is June 21!), now is the perfect time to upgrade your hallways, classrooms, floors, and walls with our wonderful path products. And remember, sensory paths aren’t only beneficial for children with sensory processing issues: they’re also great brain break and alternative gym class activities.
WHYY.org published a fascinating piece on the long-lasting effects that children who are made fun of in gym class experience. Titled “Fixing the Nightmare Gym Class Can Be For Some Kids,” the piece discusses how some PE teachers are allowing kids and young adults to choose how they spend their active gym time. Some kids, for instance, can run on the track if they wish; others can play a game of volleyball or badminton. As long as the children are being physically active, gym class is up to them. This is where our Sidekicks (and indeed, our entire Super Stickers line) can help. Why not set up one of our hopscotches in the hallway just outside of the gym, or even in the gym itself?
Have any questions about spacing, or perhaps even a custom design idea? We can help!
