The backless bench provides a great space for children to gather and connect as well as offering opportunities to develop gross motor skills. The bench can be a balance beam, a log to jump from or anything a child’s imagination can conjure up, supporting the child’s language, proprioceptive, vestibular and tactile skills. The bench’s rough bark and smooth seat offers contrasting tactile experiences.
