Floor Basketball Game: Perfect for Circle Time!
By: Renata Bursten, Dragonfly Staff

The Floor Basketball Game can be used by children in wheelchairs, standers, or custom seating solutions. Social skills and gross motor skills are developed with the floor basketball game. Portable and accessible from all sides, it is great for circle activity time. Try using balls of different weights or sizes to vary the difficulty level. Balls with different tactile surfaces provide variety. Place the hope next to a wall to provide a back board for advanced shots.

Strong and limber hands help all fine motor skills.
