During the period of being funded for Autism Therapy tools, I purchased the JUMBO textured block pack. A big investment, 4 years later we are still finding ways to use them for therapy needs.
Starting with blocks as big as possible we began with basic balancing towers and buildings. When told my daughter would need to build her muscle strength and balance after being diagnosed with minor feet issues we discovered a new use. The kids have decided this new activity is “Parkour” although its pretty tame in comparison.
The texture on the blocks provide some grip but are still soft on the feet. We set up different patterns with them and race to the end. I have found so many other uses like car ramps, making giant letters, one single balancing beam – with 32 giant blocks in a pack you can create a pretty big tower!
