A jack-o-lantern ball like this one is a super fun addition to an October/Halloween themed My Obstacle Course!Â I saw one of these the other day at the grocery store and I think I got mine at Target.
- making a basket (whether with little basketball hoop or even a laundry basket!).
Note: I use balls in the house because Andrew is not very strong with his ball skills. I say this because if he were a child who could really kick or throw, I would probably not use kicking or throwing as a station. (I saw a child at Andrewâ€™s sports league the other day who I fully expect to see punting field goals for the pros someday with his kicking ability at age 5!) If this is the case in your house, you donâ€™t have to scrap incorporating balls altogether. It could be used along with math facts or spelling words as a passing or rolling back and forth activity. (ex. â€œtreatâ€ â€œtâ€ – pass/roll, â€œrâ€ pass/roll, â€œeâ€ pass/roll, â€œaâ€ pass/roll, â€œtâ€ pass/roll or you: 5+2= (pass/roll), child: 7 (pass/roll) )
