Lets' Play with the ElastaBlast!

ElastaBlast, also known as the Co-Oper Band or the Bungie Cord, is Mary and Laura's number one toy choice for an inclusive activity that invites children to play cooperatively together with a wide variety of music and activities. The ElastaBlast, a Parent's Choice Gold Award Winner, is a circular, bungee-like stretch band. Their new DVD and Handbook shows children of ALL abilities having fun around the ElastaBlast. Over the past 15 years they have developed a wide range of developmental activities that delight and engage children around the ElastaBlast. The DVD introduces children doing the basic actions and participating in a variety of songs and activities. The handbook lays out 30 activities with music that work on all areas of early childhood development.

The Elastablast has been a wonderful tool to use to bring four and five year olds together for a social skills group. Along with music the preschoolers rush to join the group and love beginning with a motor activity as recommended in Let's Play With the Elastablast. The Elastablast promotes working together and engagement along with alot of laughter, fun and gross motor development. I would highly recommend it in any preschool setting.
