Children love playing with balls of all shapes and sizes. And with good reason: balls are great for group play, organised sports or just playing by yourself. They are also suitable for a variety of age groups (from babies to children and even adults).
Bubbles can provide hours of fun and fascination for your baby. If they are too young to blow the bubbles themselves, they will enjoy watching the bubbles float and burst.
Physical play is an important part of children’s development of gross and fine motor skills. Games such as Walk and Stop utilise their listening skills to encourage children to move and have fun. It is also a good way to use some of the physical energy that a lot of children have.
Dodge ball is an excellent way to get rid off some of that excess energy that kids can often have, particularly in a large group. It is a great way to exercise and develop their fine and gross motor skills.
A windy day can provide ideal conditions for kite flying, as well as a good excuse to get outdoors and have some fun with your children.
Children enjoy creative physical activities. With an outdoor obstacle course, their imagination can run wild when designing and choosing obstacles, while developing their gross and fine motor skills.
“Queenie” is an old, but timeless game, which children genuinely enjoy playing. When there is a large group of children it can get quite noisy and chaotic. Exercise their focus skills with this activity.
