Don’t you think physical exercise, just like mental exercise, rewards children with better skills, health and fitness?
If you have a Frisbee, you can get creative with some target practice and games. If your child doesn’t know how to throw a Frisbee, get a nice soft one (REI has a good one,) show him or her how to curl his or her arm and Frisbee into the body, uncurl and release. It does take a bit of practice but the fun will be worth it.
Game 1: Throw through a hoop . . .
Game 2: Throw at a target . . .
Game 3: Throw on top of the roof . . .
Game 3: Throw Two Frisbees (adapted from Family Fun) . . . two players stand on either side of the yard. Each has a Frisbee. Play begins simultaneously, the object is to keep the the Frisbees apart, so both are not on the same side at the same time.
