Activity Video Idea - Eye Foot Coordination and Active Hip ROM

Here is a simple activity idea to use with children or adults.  Place a small velcro strap around the individual's foot.  Have the individual sit down in a chair.  Roll a tennis ball towards the feet.  The person tries to "catch" the tennis ball with the foot, lift the leg to remove the ball and roll it back.  If you want to challenge balance at the same time try this activity on a t stool, therapy ball or in standing.  This activity encourages:
  1. eye foot coordination
  2. eye hand coordination to remove the ball
  3. motor planning
  4. crossing midline
  5. active hip range of motion
  6. precursor activity to donning/ doffing socks and shoes
