These unique hand made wooden balance boards were a big hit at the 2012 Holiday Faire. Crafted by a Meadowbrook Waldorf School parent, these beautiful boards are very durable and stained a soft rainbow pastel.
For any age, regular use of a balance board improves core strength and reaction time. They can also be used to increase the difficulty of another activity, such as doing push-ups, or swinging a baseball bat. Children simply love the physical challenge of balancing. A limited amount of these boards will be featured in the Holiday Faire store. They sold out quickly last year, so be sure to look for them early!
