PlanToys Hammer BallsUpdated a year ago

The Hammer Ball Bench is a fantastic combination of gross and fine motor skills that has a pleasing combination of auditory inputs. This bench can help build strong coordination and motor development. 

  • While holding each ball, describe the shape (sphere) and color. 
  • Model how to put each ball into its corresponding hole. 
  • Model how to use the mallet to bang the ball. 
  • Narrate what occurs when the ball is hit with the mallet and drops through the hole. Ask, where did the ball go? 
  • Remove each ball and practice rolling it back and forth with your child. 

Children's play should be monitored at all times. 

Skills developed: gross motor skills, fine motor skills, logical thinking, hand eye coordination, coordination, and color recognition 

Parts included: Bench, 3 Brightly Colored Balls, Mallet
