>#135: Skip Stones

Find a stone that fits nicely in your hand. A good skipping stone is flat on the bottom and slightly rounded on top.

Try to get the stone to skip along the top of the water in a lake or pond (smooth water without waves works best). If you throw the stone side-arm, it helps the stone bounce along the water’s surface. See how many times you can get it to skip.

Safety First: watch out for people and animals.

Make this a family activity: See who can skip their stones the most or the farthest.

This activity promotes motor control and angle calculation development.

Playtime is more fun when it's shared with others. Share this post with your friends.
