When I was at school, particularly Junior school, the craze was to throw/bounce two balls against a wall and catching them whilst singing/reciting a rhyme. Sadly you don't see much of that today. I used to play for hours, either alone or with my friends.
I wasn't too good at it at first, but after a couple of sessions with my mother (she was brilliant at it, I remember watching her in awe) I got the hang of it.
Well during these school holidays, I'm going to teach Rebecca how to do it. She may be a little old to be learning it now, as she's going to Comprehensive in September, but I think it'll benefit her not only as new skill but also improve her eye/hand co-ordination too.
Can't wait to get started now!
