Throwing Game


The Throwing Game activity stimulates the children’s kinaesthetic and tactile senses. The children also practise basic motor skills and eye-hand coordination at the same time.


  1. Find a slightly sloping hill. Some of the children can throw, for example, cones, balls, chestnuts or sticks.
  2. The children throw the object.
  3. The children run to fetch the object, pick it up and walk up again to the starting point.
  4. Throw-run-fetch and walk up again.


  • One child throws, another picks the object up and gives it to the child who threw it. A variation could also be throwing the object backwards.


Cones, balls, chestnuts or sticks.
