Why We Love Expandable Breathing Balls 

The Expandable Breathing Ball is a highly innovative tool, incredibly visual, and so much fun to use. It’s an amazing visual aid for deep breathing and a must-have for the calm-down area in your home or classroom. 

Each sphere is constructed from bright, colourful pieces, with lots of interconnected moving parts that are fascinating to watch. Its design can help improve children’s fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination for tasks such as writing, tying shoelaces, and other fine motor activities. 

For children needing sensory processing support, our plastic expanding ball offers a physical way to engage their senses through hands-on play. The repetitive motion also helps children regulate and transition into a relaxed state, which can be integrated into bedtime routines to support sleep.

Ways to Use Sensory Expandable Balls

  • Enhance fine motor skills by squeezing and stretching the ball, which requires coordination and strength from both hands.
  • Improve focus and reduce anxiety through repetitive motion and tactile feedback.
  • Work on bilateral coordination skills by engaging both hands in simultaneous action.
  • Help children visualise taking deep breaths as they learn the importance of slowing down and calming self-regulation strategies. Hold the expandable ball in front of your belly, take a deep breath in while expanding and exhale slowly while contracting the sphere.
