Today, we’re highlighting our 5 top posts of 2014. It was fun to see the variety of posts that made the list this year – our readers seemed to like both activities for kids and posts that included information about child development.
It’s hard to believe that we have more than a year under our belts here at The Inspired Treehouse! The longer we work on this blog, the more inspired we are about promoting healthy development for all children through play!
We appreciate all of you, our loyal readers, for following along with us, for giving us constructive input, and for asking thoughtful questions that help us plan the future direction of The Inspired Treehouse.
Here are the top 5:
1 || A Pediatric Physical Therapist Explores W-Sitting and W-Sitting Revisited – These two posts, both on the topic of W-Sitting, were near at top of our list of most popular posts over the last year. We’ve read a ton of comments and fielded lots of controversy on the topic and continue to enjoy educating others and hearing our readers’ experiences with W-Sitting.
2 || Hand Clapping Games –Who would have thought that hand clapping games could address so many different developmental skills at once!? Bilateral coordination, memory and cognitive skills, and cooperative play are all packed into this fun childhood tradition!
3 || Core Strengthening Exercises for Kids – We’ve found that the most popular search terms that bring people to our blog (parents, teachers, therapists, etc.) have to do with core strengthening activities and core strengthening exercises for kids. This post seems to fit the bill!
4 || Sensory Processing: 5 Things OTs Want You to Know – In this post, we address some common myths we’ve encountered as occupational therapists regarding sensory processing and sensory activities for kids.
5 || Baby Bumble Bee Activity for Kids – A fine motor and sensory twist on an old favorite kids song, this activity quickly became one of our most popular because kids LOVE squeezing and squishing their own little bumble bee!
