Hoop Games

First Steps Hoop Games Hoops are fun and versatile piece of equipment that can be used in a variety of ways. We can balance along them or roll them around on the ground, or even twirl them around our arms and waist, just like you did as a child. Children love them, and they can be used as an important tool in building your child's fine and gross motor skills.

Parachute Games

First Steps Parachute Games Parachutes are a great tool to introduce team work into the sessions. The use of parachute games is ideal for all ages and abilities. The ‘Shark’ or the ‘Jumping Ball’ games are a hit with children and staff alike.

Target Games

First Steps Target Games Throwing a ball or a bean bag at a target will help to develop hand / eye coordination. The children also learn the basics of trajectory and start to judge distances. These skills are used in numerous sports, so target games build a solid foundation and are a key to future success.

Ball Games

First Steps Ball Games Balls are one of the most versatile pieces of play equipment that you can have, and we have loads of them. They can be bounced, thrown, passed and caught, all developing co-ordination, and co-operation when used as part of a team game.

Balancing Games

First Steps Balancing Games Children love a challenge, and balancing along a line of quoits or a rope is a great way for them to develop important balance skills. Even balancing around a hoop will increase proprioception of the foot and stimulate all the intricate muscles of the feet.

Quoit Games

First Steps Quoit Games Quoits are a great versatile piece of equipment. We can squeeze them and stretch them and they can help to build our strength. We can roll them, using our fine pincer like grip and spin them around, but the favourite quoits game of all is the ‘wonky, wobbly bridge’. This is a great game where children have to walk along and balance without falling off. It’s far harder than it sounds!

Agility Games

First Steps Agiligy Games We have many fun ways for your child to develop their agility and fluidity of movement. The special hurdles to jump over or crawl under are always a hit, and the children love our agility ladders where we turn into trains and move along the tracks in different ways. During our agility games we ask the children to describe how they can move. ‘We can move fast and slow and forwards and sideways.’ Self expression is so important in the development of every individual.

Role Play

First Steps Role Play Games Role play is so important for your child's development. By using their imagination they can transform into wriggly worms or be as tall as a giraffe. The world is indeed their oyster. Through self expression they can achieve their ultimate dreams, just like Luke (aged 4) said "I’m Buzz Lightyear" "I will see you in space".

Fun Games

First Steps Fun Games Learning and development should be fun. Our ethos is built around FUN games in a safe environment. Whatever equipment is used, or during our warm up and cool down games, your child will have an enjoyable experience. They will be learning new skills and nurturing physical and emotional attributes to help them in their future.

Other Games

First Steps Other Games Coaching at Fit & Fun is one of the best games in the world, and one of our favourite things we like to do is inventing new and exciting games for our classes to enjoy. Hopping around like bunny rabbits or bouncing a ball through a hoop, our imagination seems to be limitless.
