Monkey Bars Certificates
 
which hand?
I always say - if it ain't broke, don't fix it! If it's not interfering with his creativity when writing or is not fatiguing as a result of his hand and arm tiring, then leave it well alone! Sometimes it is more an adult problem.

That said, there are many children whose grip is interfering with their story writing and pencil control and are being assessed on this basis. We are finding that many more children are climbing, hanging and using their upper body strength less and less in favour of more sedentary play. This is having a big effect on their ability to grip and refine their manipulative skills. Not to mention the many other benefits this kind of play encourages. I believe monkey bars are one of the most underrated play patterns and seem to be disappearing from our playgrounds. For those who are keen to learn more about the benefits of this play, read our blog http://movingsmartblog.blogspot.co.nz/.../m-is-for....
