Beach Ball Math

You Will Need:

An inflated beach ball, a permanent marker


Write a number on each colored section of the ball with a permanent marker. When your child catches the ball, have him identify the numeral closest to his body or that he touched with his hand as he caught the ball. Then, have him jump or clap that many times.


This activity is a fun way to combine physical activity and math. A slightly deflated ball may be easier for younger children to catch.
