Ball games require quite a lot of skill. So before you try to have a kick about with your toddler, try rolling a ball back and forth to them. Sit down on the floor opposite them, so you’re at the same level and gently roll the ball towards them. Start off quite close to one another and move further away once they get the hang of it.

Stopping the ball and rolling it back to you can help them to learn how to follow objects with their eyes, judge distances and improve coordination.
