The Bouncy Boomerang Ball is beyond fun. We have seen our own children entertained by this ball for hours. Not only is it fun to practice throwing and catching. The Bouncy Boomerang Ball can also create awareness about motor skills. For example, you can challenge your child to throw and catch the ball with the hand opposite to the one they choose naturally. In all likelihood this is going to be a lot harder than with their preferred throwing hand.
About the product:
- Includes a bouncy ball secured by an elastic band attached to a wrist band.
- The wrist band can be adjusted from a minimum of 5 cm in diameter to a maximum of 6 cm in diameter.
To spark your child’s curiosity you can ask some questions. For example, why is it easier to catch and throw with one of one’s hands rather than the other? Through this simple question you may begin introducing your child to an exciting area of science. Firstly, tell your child about the left and right hemispheres of the brain. Secondly, explain that the left hemisphere controls the right side of the body and vice versa. Finally, say that if one prefers to throw with the right hand, it means that the left hemisphere is better trained at throwing. Be ready to receive some creative questions”
