Throwing by Numbers Area: Game, gross motor skills, academic, numeracy You will need: balls (make by scrunching up tinfoil/wrapping paper/paper or tissue paper into balls), basket/box, some paper/card and a bowl. Preparation: Make 10 balls using any of the materials above. Empty a basket/box Cut paper/card into squares and write numbers 1-10 on the cards How to play: Put the basket/box out in front of the child. Put the balls together beside the child. Put the cards with the numbers on them into a bowl. Get the child to pick out a card for bowl. The child will then read the number and throw that amount of balls into the basket/box. You can increase the difficulty by moving the box/basket further and further away. May the best thrower win!
