Fun Summer Activities For Kids By Dr.Britt

These activities are not only fun for young children, but can also be fun for adults. There are many ways to play with both balloons and hula hoops, including using different positions for the hula hoops (such as waist, arm and legs) and playing catch or trying to keep balloons in the air. Balloon bags are simply clear trash bags that are sealed that contain many different color balloons inside. This helps stimulate the eyes, but also keeps broken balloons inside the trash bag. These activities will increase hand-eye coordination as well as general coordination skills.
