Invitation to Play - Sticks and balls
3-5 yr olds
How to Play
Place the items (hockey sticks, tennis racquets etc) in a large open space along with the balls.
Tips and Ideas
- If children don’t engage with the material try modelling for a few moments or verbally encouraging one or two children to try it. This gives other children the ‘idea’ of what they might do with the equipment.
- Prime the Invitation by facilitating a game such as Push Around before this invitation to play to prompt children with ideas as to how they may use the equipment.
