Sock Basketball – Physical Activity
Want to shoot some hoops, but don’t have a basketball net? Here’s an easy DIY option that doesn’t require many materials and that children can help to set up. All you need are socks for the ball and a container such as a basket or box to be the net. This activity works well indoors or outdoors and provides some physical activity.
Roll the socks you have collected into a ball.
Place the basket in a clear space.
Aim and toss the sock that you have rolled into the basket.
If you’re playing with more than one player, take turns shooting the socks into the basket.
To challenge your child, have them shoot from different distances. They can also keep track of how many times they score.
