Play method

  • In pairs or teams, one child throws or drops the ball and the other(s) catch it
  • Using the reactive ball, drop it and let it bounce.
  • Then the catcher tries to catch it 
  • Trying to hit a target with the drop, or throw of the ball, before catching it

Inclusion challenge

Children with better aim and throwing ability toss the sponge balls to their less mobile partners, who catch it in a catching bowl.
