Playing with balls improves kids’ motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and timing, which are important parts of development progression for kids. This game is suitable for any aged child because it immediately strengthens motor skills. Take a ball and play with your kid in a park or any outside area (because at home, they can break anything).
