本週活動 ACTIVITY OF THE WEEK
This week, you will need some space where you can throw things and not hit anything.
Quick Tip: Encourage your child to throw underhand so they can’t throw as hard. Also, the older your child is, the more characters you can add. Otherwise, start with just two.
所需道具 WHAT YOU NEED
- 豆袋/布偶玩具/布球 Bean bags/stuffed animals/ball
- 沒有蓋的盒子 Open boxes
- 單字卡 Character cards
*Alternate materials: Sticky ball/suction cup ball, Dry erase marker, paper/cards with characters on it, bean bags
準備工作 HOW TO MAKE
- 將盒子排列好 (任何形式都可以)
- Line up the boxes in any configuration
- Put a character card in front of the box
*Alternate ideas: Instead of cards, you can use boxes or even sheets of paper to denote the different characters.
You can also use a white board and write a character on the left side of the board and another character on the right side. (Or write until you’re done with all the characters. At most 6-8 at a time.)
玩法 HOW TO PLAY
Bean Bag Character Toss (age 3+, 1+ players)
1. Ask the child to throw the sticky ball or bean bag into a box of the character you say
2. Child will then throw at the character.
3. Take turns until all the characters are used for every child.
Alternate ways to play: You can keep track of the number of characters each child gets correct and have a winner. You can also put the boxes/sheets of paper in different parts of the room and ask the kids to run to the character you say.
Quick Tip: For younger children, start with 2 characters.
