    Throw Hard, Throw Far

    1. Invite your child to join you in an indoor or outdoor space with a large wall to play a throwing game. Place a line of masking tape or rope on the floor for your child to stand behind. If playing indoors, place the line a few feet in front of a bare wall. If indoors, have your child throw the ball as hard as they can at the wall. If outdoors, ask them to throw the ball as far (or as hard) as they can into an open field.

    2. Invite your child to throw using an overhand motion. Describe the steps as you demonstrate.

      "Pick up a beanbag or ball and place it in the hand you are going to use for throwing."

      "Stand behind the line and bend your elbow up and hold the beanbag behind your head. Then step forward with the opposite foot and throw the beanbag as hard or as far as you can."

    3. Encourage your child to throw the ball using all the appropriate throwing cues. Stress the cues "throw hard" and "step with the opposite foot." Throwing skills will vary greatly. they may want to get close to the wall, or will need the challenge of being farther away (adjust rope or line accordingly).

      "Step with your opposite foot."

      "Have the side of your body face the target, the big tree."

      "Move your throwing arm way back."

      "Follow through on the throw, so your hand is pointing at the target when you release the ball."

     

    Catching With a Scoop

    1. Invite your child to join you outside.  Give your child a small ball and a ladle or scoop.  Stand far enough apart.   Demonstrate how to hold the scoop in one hand and the ball in the other hand.

    2. Demonstrate the steps of throwing and catching the ball. To be successful, a child must toss the ball into the air in front of his/her body and then position the scoop to catch the ball.

      "Watch how I toss the ball straight into the air."

      "Remember to watch the ball."

      "Move your scoop so that you catch the ball in the scoop."
