Move, learn and grow with a ball.
A sensory ball is a great way for your little one to explore! Throw, push, kick & catch…. Check out our favourite fun development activities to do with a ball!
Throw and Catch!

lots to learn!
As they get a grasp on the release, try setting up some targets. Knock downs work on judging force & aiming at a goal works on accuracy & finer direction!
Balls are for Balance! Kicking needs that one foot weight transfer! What about prickly massage for some great tactile sensory input! Can you hold in one hand, keep it still & count with me? 1,2,3!
Sitting on a wiggly ball chair works core, legs & hip flexors!
