How to Play

Set the items in an accessible area. Encourage the children to throw and catch as many different items as possible.

Tips and Ideas:

  • Play the game Cloud Catching before this activity so the children have some ideas.
  • If they don’t engage with the material try modelling for a few moments or verbally encouraging one or two children to try it.
  • Use a variety of soft balls (smaller and larger) to ensure they can choose the size they are confident with.
