Wonder Bottle Leap
Eye-foot coordination, Proprioceptive, Vestibular, Focused Attention
7 2-liter wonder bottles (with some water, sand, or gravel in each bottle)
Let's do it
Place a mat on the floor to mark the starting place. Place 2 bottles on their sides with sides touching. Leave a space. Then place 3 bottles on their sides with sides touching. Leave another space. Then place 2 bottles on their sides with sides touching. The spaces between the sets need to be wide enough for a child to be able to jump between the sets.
To play, the child stands on the mat and jumps over the bottles without moving them as quickly as she can. Place crashpads on either side for misses. Start with only the first 2 bottle set. Add additional sets as the child gains skill.
Pump it up
Decrease the bottle weight. Decrease distance between bottles. Increase to 3,4,3 bottle sets.
