Today in the Indoor Movement room, the children played a new game on the scooters. The object was to get the balls into a basket while riding around on the scooters to collect them. The children were very creative with how they held onto the balls so that they could carry more at once. Some of them filled their hands with four or five at once, while other children used their legs to hold even more. In one round they raced to see who could get the most balls, and next they tried to work together to get them all as fast as they could.
