Best Traditional ball games for kids
Traditional ball games for kids bring many advantages because these games help children learning how to hold the ball in different ways, developing special skills. And the best part of it all is that they have fun a lot.
Here are two very funny examples of Traditional ball games for kids, one from Colombia and one from Mexico.
OBA from Colombia
This game is very interesting, and when we visited this country we see many children playing this game on the street. The game consists of taking the ball and try to throw it up against the wall, but always trying to make different movements, and Also singing a song about the game.
This game is very interesting precisely for developing the motor skills of children, helping to develop their ability to hold the ball in different ways (with one arm, with both arms, trying to take a turn while the ball returns to us, with the arms behind the back, leaning with one foot, or jumping).
Keep the Ball from Mexico
As you can see, Traditional ball games for kids besides being fun can help kids in their development, especially the motor skills.
This game is very fun, and it is part of the traditions of Mexico. It is very common this game is played with family and friends, and it is one of the favourites of children. Let’s see now how to play this amazing game!
First, we have to form two teams. There are no number of players limit (which is fantastic, whether for small groups, such as for large groups). It is played with one hand, and sometimes with our feet. Before the game starts we decide the rules: the playing time and the size of the field, for example. It uses also a soft ball.
Therefore, to initiate the game, someone throws the ball to the sky. The player to catch the ball has to save it for his team. So to keep the ball in his team, he throws the ball to his teammates. The opponents have to try to catch the ball. Note that you can not return the ball to who gave to you previously. That is, if I throw you the ball, you can not throw it to me again, but to the other player of your team.
Once the time expires, wins the team that has the ball!
