Teach kids balance and coordination in Kids First Balloon Ball

By Schaumburg Park District

Catch on!

Balloon ball is played like soccer with kids being allowed to pick up the ball and run with it, or throw it, or kick it in one of the two goals for a score.

The action is a bit faster, with few rules than soccer so kids are not being corrected as much in this new fast pace game. Kids will be taught coordination and balance along with the importance of exercise that their bodies need.

Kids just love this new game that was created by Kids First.

For more information, call (847) 985-2143 or visit www.parkfun.com.
