Unique activity for practicing tracking!

To practice striking, tracking and running.
Game Rules: 
Have an adult stand across from the child and lead him or her with the laser pointer (or a flashlight in the dark) on the ground. Give the child a flyswatter (a pool noodle, rolled up newspaper or their hand will work as well) and tell them to get the fly.
