For young children with an abundance of energy, active kids’ chairs can help them stay in one place while still fidgeting and leaning. Stools allow kids to pivot or stand easily, and their small footprint keep classrooms open and walkways clear. Chairs that wobble encourage students to move while they work, keeping them active and focused. Inflated seats are both comfortable and fidget-friendly, and they can be great for adults as well. Ball chairs are a classic choice for active kids’ chairs, but they can roll away and may be a distraction in the classroom. Different ages and sizes will require different chairs or chairs that adjust easily.
