Do all balls roll?
*Gather any round(circular) and/or ball shaped item in your home. Take them outside (weather permitting). See which items can roll. Why do they roll? (are they filled with air, are they flat or a sphere, are they heavy or light, are they hard or squisy?) Will a pancake roll?
*Using any larger sized ball, sit on the floor across from your child, legs open. Roll the ball back and forth, slowly at first, then increasing speed as your child becomes comfortable with trapping the ball and rolling it back. After some practice, try counting aloud how many times you can get the ball back and forth. Can you get to 20 passes? If the ball can bounce, try standing and bouncing the ball back and forth!
*Names are Important activity.
You can use any shape of paper, substitute paint with water and food coloring if you don't have paint and the marbles for any round object!
