Activities involving ascent develop motor and psycho-motor skills as children need to manage their balance and work out strategies to climb higher. This is an excellent exercise and children apply great concentration, encouraged by their apprehension of the empty space below.
The objective is to coordinate arms and legs to find climbing holds and move upwards. The higher the child goes, the more his or her self-confidence grows. This activity helps to develop body awareness and children gradually refine their movements to achieve a smooth and dynamic flow.
