The activities in this section utilize a beanbag or other such small, soft, easy to catch objects. Activities are designed to promote skills in throwing, catching, balancing and fitness. Beanbags are inexpensive (or can be homemade), easy to store and carry, and are soft (students are not afraid to catch them).
