Kids think about golf to be like any other video game: workout, play and enjoyable. They haven’t fallen under the trap that golf is hard, frustrating and difficult. Although getting the kids out on the course is more effective, sometimes the weather is bad or there simply isn’t time for even nine holes of golf much less 18.
If you are a golf lovers, here are some golf games (great summer activities for kids) you can play with your kiddos. It has a few gross motor twists and can be played obstacle course style or simply as individual games on their own. Regardless which games you choose to play, your kiddos will be so worn out.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
– a golf club for everyone (plastic or real toy clubs).
– a couple of golf balls.
– an item for a target (basket, cone, etc).
– a couple of plastic cups.
WHAT TO DO: Here are some concepts for gross motor activities utilizing those golf clubs.
1– Putt the ball along a taped line or chalk line on the driveway– make this line as long as you would like. Make it curvy or make it straight. Go uphill or down. Who can remain on the line the longest?
2– Putt while basing on one foot– see who can stand like a stork and putt the ball to a target.
3– Putting relay race– Place several marks around the yard utilizing cones or on the driveway utilizing chalk. Start by standing at one marker and motivate your child try to putt his ball all the method to you and through your legs. When he does, have him move to the next marker to wait for daddy to putt through his legs.
4– Target practice– everyone start with the exact same variety of balls. Who can get the most balls closest to the target?
5– Target practice part 2– location plastic cups all over the yard or driveway. Have your kid putt their ball to attempt to knock over each cup. The number of putts or how much time does it take? Can he beat papa?
