Hoola Hoop Motor Planning Game
My clients really enjoyed this hoop activity! It requires 2 hoops and 3 or more players. The player in orange picks up the empty hoop and places it over the first individual. Then this first individual steps out of the hoop and the 2nd player steps into the newly emptied hoop. This sequence can continue indefinitely. Some children or adults may be able to play this with 2 teams and compete to see who can reach an end point first....
I love this activity because it works on
• balance as the individuals step in and out of hoops
• motor planning as the hoop is placed over a player’s head
• following directions and
• patience to wait for the other players to complete their part….
