With the popularization of electronic products, a large number of electronic games have been launched on and on. Electronic products such as mobile phones and Ipads have naturally become their “toys”, but in the long run, it may pose a threat to children’s health and social skills. Have parents ever thought about reducing their dependence on electronic products, such as trying to DIY fun games together rather than game apps? This time, we will introduce how to make an environmentally friendly football table at home and enjoy a fun parent-child football match at home!
Materials: one shoebox, four long chopsticks, ten clothespins (in two colors), one ping pong ball, tape, scissors
1. First cut off the top of the shoebox and one small rectangle at each end of the shoebox as the goals. It is optional that the outside of shoebox can be decorated with colorful wrapping paper and tape can be also put on the edge.
2. Pierce four holes on both sides of shoebox, both symmetrically, and put long chopsticks in it to ensure that they can be moved flexibly. It is suggested that tape can be attached to the ends of each chopstick for easy operation.
3. Put two clothespins on each of the two chopsticks on each corner side and two other clothespins in each of the two chopsticks in the middle, acting as “players”. After putting one ping pong ball in it as football, the football table is finished!
With simple materials and steps, the football table is not only conducive to train hands-on ability and responsiveness of children with autism, but also helps cultivate more diverse play interests. This parent-child game allows autistic children to increase parent-child cooperation in the play and creates opportunities for children to learn to face wins and losses as well as emotional management. A mile to a smile!
