Activity description:

  • With your child, sit on the floor facing each other with both of your legs apart in a “V” shape.
  • Roll a ball back and forth to each other, trying to keep it in between your legs and on the ground.

Skill development:

  • Physical skills: rolling an object; stopping an object; eye-hand coordination

  • Start with a larger ball that is easier to roll and catch.
