This super-soft ball is perfect for teaching a toddler to catch and throw. Because it’s literally as soft as cotton, there won’t be any bumps or bruises along the way!
I had a net bag full of onions from the market, and instantly knew I could use it instead of simply throwing it away. Snip the top of the bag open carefully so the rest stays intact.
Fill with cotton balls until you’ve formed a round ball, then use a twist tie or elastic to seal it shut. I showed Veronika briefly how to kick with it. But as I mentioned, this ball was truly perfect for working on tossing back and forth with her.
At 22 months, she can’t quite catch a ball yet, but I loved that we introduced the concept and now we know exactly which ball to practice with for future toss sessions.
