You’ve been asking for it and here it is: a new package to work on laterality in children, specifically cross laterality with children! In addition, we include in this package a maze generator to work on planning with a spatial component. In total we’ve included four new generators to add a fresh new component to your interventions.
Activities to work on children’s laterality
These three exercises are ideal for working with children on right and left laterality in a fun and entertaining way:
Which way are they facing?
In this activity children have to try to identify which way the elements are facing, as shown in the example:
Left or right?
In this case, children have to identify which side various elements are on, right or left.
Which side does it go on?
This exercise to work on children’s laterality consists of placing objects on the correct side.
What do these activities work?
With these activities we are working on cross laterality, a common problem in consultations, which is part of the child’s body schema.
Application in daily life
In daily life it is essential to differentiate right and left for many tasks. With these cross laterality activities, children will learn to identify which way different elements are facing, to place things on the correct side of another item or to choose what they need on the indicated side.
Personalization of children’s laterality activities
In addition, these three infant laterality activities can be customized.
In all of these generators you can adjust the type of operation, the maximum time, whether or not you want a visible timer for the activity and an inactivity warning, modify the instructions for the activity, etc.
The parameters are specific to each activity. In the following, we will delimit what can be customized in each of them
- Which way is it facing?: number of exercises. and whether the elements are the same or not.
- Left or Right?: number of exercises.
- Which side does it go on?: number of exercises.
Generator to work on planning with a spatial component.
Escape the labyrinth
In addition, we include in this package the generator Escape the labyrinth. It is ideal for working on planning with a spatial component for both children and adults (this package is mainly for children, but we didn’t want to completely leave out the adults).
Here they have to think hard about where the path goes (up, down, right or left) to find the exit. A great planning activity!
What does this activity work?
Great planning activity with a spatial component! It also works on sustained attention.
In the general aspects, you can adjust the type of operation, the maximum time, whether or not you want a visible timer for the activity , an inactivity warning, modify the instructions for completion, etc.
You can choose the size of the matrix (number of columns and rows) and the length of the path (long or short).

What is laterality? Laterality is the distribution of functions across the two cerebral hemispheres. The preference for one side of the body over the other (right or left) to perform actions depends on this distribution. This laterality comes from the binary organization of our nervous system. In fact, this duality is found in our body:…
