Basketball Activities and Crafts
We are just all about the basketball around here! My younger son loves it and plays in two different leagues. We love watching March Madness and the NBA game. Of course, since we spend so much time talking about basketball, I wanted to involve Kevin, beyond taking him to his brother’s games.
I really like these activities because basketball isn’t babyish like some other sensory activities. Kevin is 11. And while I don’t care if he enjoys something that isn’t considered age-appropriate for him, I want to expose him to things that are more sophisticated and age-appropriate.
Basketball is also something that is fun for everyone. Wheelchair basketball leagues are popular. Both males and females play plus it is a sport of Special Olympics. Some places even have leagues in a pool for senior citizens.
But, this time of year, make no mistake that it’s all about March Madness and then the NBA championship. So engage your entire family in the fun with these activities.
And don’t forget, you’ll want to complement these learning activities with books about basketball for kids
