I have been researching Montessori and Montessori activities for awhile now and this is one of the first things I found. Walking On the Line, is basically just what it sounds like. First I used duct tape to form an "ellipse" as best as I could! I am sure I didn't do the shape exactly right. He really liked this activity much more than I thought he would. I showed him how to walk slowly and balance while walking on the line. Then I showed him Heel Toe walking. Then we carried a full cup of water while walking and trying now to spill it. And he wanted to carry a box of oranges! Now that was kinda difficult!
