Hula Hoops are a lot of fun. There are a variety of activities you can do with them.
The Run through the Hoop activity helps to build coordination, mobility, flexibility, and spatial awareness. The kids even had to use some problem solving skills to figure out how to travel through a moving hoop.
We started with the kids running through one stationary hoop. Then we added a second hoop. After a few minutes I started rolling the hoop and had the kids try to move through the rolling hoop. They had to figure out the best way that they could get through the hoop.
We we had a great time with this activity. The kids got creative in their thinking and movements.
