I plan on using these with a balloon to hit back and forth. I may try to get us in a circle and the person who has the balloon hit to him or her may have to say something like his her name/age/etc. to encourage language development, plus some hand/eye coordination. :) Since not everyone has access to paddles I thought I would share another idea so you could make your own set. This is what you will need:
- paint sticks (often available for free from your local hardware store)
- paper plates
and voila! Your very own paddles....
Add a balloon
And you have an indoor game to use any way you choose!
