Whenever we need a quick vestibular sensory fix, I usually pull out one of our swings or I put together this super quick DIY pool noodle balance board. The materials are small, making it easy to store when done. That means it's also a great option for giving your kids vestibular sensory input in a small space.

How to Make a DIY Balance Board for Kids
To make a balance board using a pool noodle, you'll need:
- Pool noodle
- Scrap piece of wood
- Sharp kitchen knife or utility knife (optional)
Simply place the board on top of the pool noodle and try to balance on it! It's harder than you may think because the pool noodle compresses under your weight, but my kids are able to figure it out.
