Teamwork is in full swing with Sasha’s Sponge Ball Relay with this activity that is great for your child and all their friends! (or you can even join in!)
Make the below make sense for singular or multiple kids
- Ask the children to line up in pairs or teams and place the same number of sponge balls a few meters away
- Each child takes turns to run and collect the balls and bring them back to the starting line
- Once a child has had their turn, they sit down
TIP: Mix it up and try different ways of travelling like skipping, hopping, or jumping to collect the ball
Mastering the art of being a team player not only sets children up for school but is a crucial social skill throughout life.
The pre-school years are an excellent stage to cultivate teambuilding skills, which in time will develop into empathy, strong communication, compromise and patience.
