Balls that are football-shapes are quite tricky for little hands; round ones are easier and can be various sizes. At the park, or just in the backyard, grownups and kids can play catch. Throw and catch sounds like a simple game, but there’s lots of different kinds of learning.
- The my-turn then your-turn helps kids practice this important social skill.
- The two actions of catching and throwing form a pattern and patterning is a critical learning strategy.

- Plus, there’s eye-hand coordination, and exercise for muscles.
- Having fun, and playing throw and catch, connects kids to adults, and kids to outside.
