Sensory Stuck at Home Free Resource for Sharing: Wall Pushups

Instructions:

  1. Let your child face the wall or door firmly shut, with no chance of opening.
  2. They should stand about an arms length away – their arm length.
  3. Their feet and knees should be a shoulder-width apart.
  4. Ask them to lean forward and put their hands palm flat against the wall, at the same height as their shoulders. Their hands should be shoulder width apart.
  5. Now ask them to “Slowly breathe in – now slowly bend your elbows and bring your nose to the wall – keep your back straight. Now straighten your elbows and go back to standing up straight”.

Moving should be slow and controlled to get the maximum benefit.
