Upper Body and Core Strength Fun Deck®

Do you want to improve your child's trunk and upper body strength, hand use, and manipulation skills? Use the Upper Body and Core Strength Fun Deck to teach controlled use and stability of a child's trunk, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, and fingers. These skills build an important foundation to help children complete everyday tasks successfully.

Upper Body and Core Strength Fun Deck includes:

  • 56 double-sided cards (3" x 5")
  • Card front presents an upper body activity with a large picture illustration, and the other side describes the movement activity with a smaller picture
  • Content cards providing game ideas, instructions, and a list of activity titles
  • Sturdy storage tin

    These cards are a great, simple tool for upper body strengthening that can be used to work on various other areas as well (sequencing, turn taking, regulation, sensory input, etc). My students have fun working on the different activities.

    I really enjoy using this card deck with many of my clients who need help building their core, trunk, and upper extremity strength. I edit the card deck to personalize for each child before allowing kids to select "any" card. It makes exercising fun, and helps kids feel like they are playing a game.

    Your cards are easy to use, fun and can be used with a variety of students from basic skills to multi-step gross motor sequencing skills. The kids enjoy the cards. And as an itinerant therapist they are convenient to throw in my bag and pull out quick.

    This is a great product to have. Good for treatment ideas and home activities. The kids love them, especially when they get to pick which activity they want. The convenient case allows me to transport these back and forth to school & clinic.

  7. Quick and Easy
    I use these with my son as a quick break when doing homework. It gives him the break he needs and works on his core strength which he needs. My daughter also likes to do these activities. I can't wait to get other fun decks.

  8. Worth the money!
    My son has very low core strength and these cards are a great way for BOTH of us to work together. These exercises are wonderfully explained and fun to do! I home school so it's a great warm up before our day begins or a wonderful break on rainy days.

  9. Practical and Handy
    Illustrations are great for quickly demonstrating exercises and I really appreciate how handy it is. Exercises also have enough variety.

  10. Fun and Challenging
    I purchased the Upper Body and Core Strength Fun Deck for my daughter with hypotonia, and we love it! I have found that many of the cards offer movements that she would otherwise not "do" without the promptings in this deck. We also have laughed and had a great time while using them. I have all three of my children (ages 4-9) participate in the activities and it is great for all them! My daughter has therapy-we have family fun- and everyone is happy!

    These cards were recommended by an occupational therapist teaching a class on sensory integration. I ordered them to help our 14 year old Asperger's son focus on excercises that would be fun and keep him calm. He choses three of these cards each day, we put them on his bulletin board and he is required to perform them in order to earn privileges. The cards are such nice quality...bright colors, shiny coating, fun artwork, and an attractive canister to store them in. Nicky hates movement and exercise, but these cards help him to enjoy moving and he likes picking the cards for the day.

    Decks. They allow almost painless teaching. Until I started he was not able to answer any question. I recommended them for Robert's school (besides buying myself) and they bought it and hopefully start using them. My son has very, VERY VERY serious problems with language and speech.
