Ball Chairs 

A variety of Ball Chairs are being used in many classrooms across the globe. I've read glowing reviews from teachers including their calming nature for all students. Let's not look ball chairs as a solution just for hyperactivity, hey we all need to get our wiggles out! 

Safco Ball Chairs are a good alternative to Yoga balls. They have a solid "glide" based leg if you want the guaranteed  stability.

Sitting was never so much fun! Kid-sized inflatable balls with built-in no-roll stabilizing legs encourages healthy posture while keeping the body active and the mind engaged. Look for a variety of sizes as you use an easy inflation pump to it up. 

Here is a Balance Ball Chair for kids K-5 (left) and older students 6-12 (below). Studies show that as children constantly move their body to maintain their balance on this moving seat, they are able to focus more easily.
