    Cotton ball Activity  

     

    * Have straws and cotton balls? Or a paper towel/toilet paper tube and small ball? Can you make the ball move by blowing through the straw or tube? Draw a track or path and see if your child can manuever the ball through the path with their hands, and then by blowing. Race your child to see whose ball can move across the floor the fastest.

    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."

       

       

    Punting

    1. Invite your child to join you in learning how to punt. Explain that a punt is a way to kick a ball while holding it. Demonstrate how to punt the ball or balloon. Explain each step as you complete it.

      "See how I hold the ball with both hands. Now I'll bring my foot up to kick."

    2. Invite your child to hold the ball (or balloon) in both hands, straight out in front of their bodies. Talk them through the movements as they step forward on their nonkicking foot. Show them how to release the ball from their hands by simply dropping, not tossing, it.

    3. Have your child practice swinging the kicking leg forward and striking the ball with the top of the foot before the ball touches the ground. Remind your child to look at the ball when they kick it.

      "Kick the ball with your shoelaces."

      "You are holding the ball well with both hands. Now let go and kick it. You did it! Let's try it again."
