Kicking a ball, what's easier! That's what you believe? He will teach your baby things with a simple balloon ... to separate from you, to exchange with others, to acquire good reflexes ... we go around the question.

With the ball, he discovers the exciting thrill of worry

  • As soon as your baby is sitting, you can start playing ball with him. Not a big balloon that would frighten him by its proportions, but a little that you will gently roll towards him. It's a bit like this nursery rhyme that you sing to make him laugh: "It's the little beast that goes up, which goes up", version "It's the little ball rolling, rolling ... But where is it This feeling mixed with excitement and anxiety fascinates your little one.It will take time before he acquires the certainty that this nice ball does not threaten him since it stops invariably where his foot or hand begins.

With the ball, he discovers that he has reflexes

  • It is only after several tests that your toddler v that, if he waits the ball with legs and arms spread, it will fall into his hands ... and it will be enough to close to imprison this funny toy. But the balloon remains very disconcerting: sometimes the chance of the gestures makes that the bal-lon escapes to him. This comforts him at first with the idea that this funny ball is endowed with a will of its own, and therefore quite fascinating.
  • Your child will quickly discover the role he plays in this scenario. He understands that it is the little slap he gives of the hand or the push of the foot that causes the ball to move away. But it does not lose its mystery, it will take time for your child to understand that it is the way he gave an impetus to the ball that has printed his direction ...

With the ball, he goes to discover the vast world

  • For the moment, your child considers the balloon as a self-contained toy that can open up new horizons. As soon as he walks on all fours, this is your toddler who leaves behind this scout to explore the most remote corners of the house. He slips in behind the lounge chair, slips into the wardrobe, dares to venture into the half-dark hallway ... And if, by chance, the ball disappears under the sofa or behind the curtain, he learns to your little one what is absence. For him, the balloon is gone, it is lost ... Alerted by his cries, you fly to his rescue with your broom to dislodge the toy. What happiness, here it is again!
  • Your child then understands that an object (or a person) can evade sight and continue to exist, and even better ... reappear. This is very reassuring because it surely has something in common with your absence from you and your return home. A good idea to dig ...

With the ball, he starts the exchange

  • Having learned how to move your body in space, your toddler has better control over the movement and the cause-and-effect relationship that produces it. Thus, he knows that a gesture of the hand can guide the ball in a certain direction. Of course, none of this is very accurate for your little one. He can not yet modulate the power of his actions to ship the toy to the desired location. But the basics are in place for a memorable part of "roll balloon".
  • Only here, your child still needs to own things to feel exist and there is no question for him to divest himself of his good to send it to you.
  • Fortunately, the desire to play with you, to exchange smiles, tweets or tickling will help him to accomplish this work that will lead him to gradually discover that "a loan results in rendering!".

With the ball, he adjusts his shot ... and his actions

  • If rolling is in his skills, to succeed to launch requires a maturation psychomotor more accomplished. We must already hold on his legs. Then we must go beyond the reflex gesture that all the little ones have: to throw the ball up and down. But after many repeated attempts with you, your child will understand that he has to send the ball up to reach the other player. A feat that he can hardly accomplish before 2 years, even a little more.
  • It will then be the beginning of a long complicity with the ball that will lead him from "I throw, you catch" to prison ball games and, later, volleyball!
