Balancing Ball Activity! Ages 4+

This was a challenge for the boys.  They had to work together carrying the ball with the sticks to the end of the course.  If the ball dropped they had to go back to the start.  They were working on teamwork, communication, balance, coordination and gross motor skills.  This was a fun way for them to practice accomplishing a goal together.  They didn’t get it right away but when they did accomplish the goal they were so excited and proud!

Materials:
2 x 4 wood (or something they can balance on)
2 closet rods (2 thick sticks would work)
Ball

First use whatever 2 x 4 wood you have to make the course. The boys put a flag at the end for fun!  Once the course is made, let the challenge begin! The boys thought it was going to be easier than it was.  It was nice to see them have to slow down and work together. 
       

They were so excited and proud when they got to the finish line.  They started cheering and running around to celebrate!  They had a lot of fun with this activity! 

 

Here is a video of the boys doing the activity!
