At first just getting on the Hop! 45 Ball may be a challenge for your little one. But children love the feel of bouncing around.
You can help your child by standing behind him/her, supporting him/her on the ball and bouncing it up and down to the squeals of laughter.
As far as learning toys go, soon your child will master balancing on the ball, pushing with his feet and bouncing around on his/her own.
Try an extra challenge by having your child lift one foot in the air while balancing on the other and then switching from one to another. How do you have to shift your weight on Hop! to stay bouncing in one place versus moving across the sidewalk?
Taking turns is such an important skill for children to learn as they begin to head-off to school and interact with more of their peers. Teach him/her that it’s just as fun to watch what happens when it’s his/her friends’ turn to hop, as when it’s his/her turn.
If you have multiple Hops! you can have races with your friends.
Or you can teach your child to beat the clock. Have each child take a turn and time them crossing a finish line. Can you beat your own time?
