If your child is in need of building concentration, fine motor, or visual perception skills, Fidgiband is for them. The Fidgiband system includes one Fidgiball, 100 high intensity bands, and a sensory intensive velvet storage bag. The Fidgiball itself is one of our best-selling hand fidgets and can be used individually. When combined with the Fidgiband system, it takes building skills to a whole new level. The beauty of the Fidgiband system is that your child is rewarded for his or her hard work. If they put in the 20 or 30 minutes to build the project, they are rewarded with a bouncing ball that can scale small buildings. This system is used daily in OT clinics everywhere, and is quickly becoming the favorite skill building activity of children across the world. Following you will find the simple steps to a fun activity that your child is guaranteed to enjoy over and over.
1. The user rolls the activity ball in circles between the palms for approximately 30 seconds which will create an instantly calming sensory input.
2. Encourage the user to separate all bands by size and color in an effort to build visual perception as well as concentration skills.
3. Repeat Step one
4. Assemble the ball starting with the longest bands and working down to the shortest ones. The ball is built by simply twisting the bands around the spikes until tight. Shorter bands are to be used at the end, and will simply slide over the ball in order to create a secure layer of bouncing fun.
5. Once all bands have been placed on the ball, all spikes should be covered. The process of covering all spikes will form a naturally circular ball that will bounce incredibly high. The tighter the bands are wrapped the higher the ball will bounce. Bands can be removed and stored in the included velvet bag for future use.
