Aimed Long Shots

Try this activity to give your child practice working on aim and precision.


  • 20 minutes


  • 2 cones or other markers
  • Playground ball


  1. Precision is the task you will work on with this activity. Mark a goal 6 to 8 feet wide to use for a target, and take turns aiming and kicking a ball that is laid on the ground so it lands between them.
  2. To assure success, the goal can be widened and the kicking distance shortened.


  • Roll the ball slowly toward the kicker.
  • Try distance kicking by aiming in the general area of a target.
  • Use balls of various sizes.
