The Peanut Ball
This is a physio ball which M. loves. She rolls over it, bounces on it, sits on it like a horse, throws it around, stands on top of it (precariously) and also likes to lie down and have it rolled over her body for deep pressure. The good thing is that it is quite hard for her to have fun with it without a partner, which is what makes it great for II. We can do turn-taking (with throwing), stop/start sequences with rolling, anticipation with ready, steady go sequences and extended pauses and we always get great eye contact and giggles during the deep pressure exercise.
The main function is to sit in the Bilibo (which is bowl-shaped) and be spun around - and spinning is always a winner! - but it could also be used for balancing on, catching beanbags, etc. Again great for stop/start activities, ready steady go etc. and definitely more fun with an adult.
The old favourite. If I blow some bubbles and then rest the lid back on the tub as though finished M. will be very proactive in restarting the game by lifting my hand, putting the bubbles up to my mouth again and sometimes vocalising as well. Because she's so motivated I can then take risks with further delay (e.g. playful sabotage, pretending to not understand, etc.) and it's also great for ready, steady go and stop/start. She likes the word 'pop' as we pop them together and will sometimes say it.
