As your little one grows he/she uses his senses to learn about the world around him/her. Let your child feel the texture of the ball, push against it and bounce it to see how it reacts to his/her touch.
At first your child may not be coordinated enough to play catch. In fact, throwing a ball is much easier than catching it in the air. Until he/she develops this hand-eye coordination, practice by first sitting on the ground and rolling the ball back and forth to each other. This will get your child used to “catching” the ball with his/her hands or in his/her legs, while creating a sense of bonding with you.
Until your child feels comfortable catching the ball, you may want to try having him/her throw the ball to you and rolling it back to him/her on the floor.
Practice catching by starting at close range. Each time your child catches the ball at that distance, step back. Soon you will be standing and throwing the ball back and forth to each other. Now it’s time for the big leagues!
Playing with a ball can involve mental abilities as well as physical. Try standing in a circle with a few people. Tell your little one to throw the ball to whoever has their name called out loud. That way they have to think of who to throw it to before they release the ball.
