Early Years Resources Throwing & Catching Review

Hello all!

The weather has been absolutely amazing recently (especially considering it's England!) and as a result the children have been spending most of their time outdoors.

The wonderful Early Years Resources sent me over one of their Active Throwing and Catching Kit's and my children have had countless hours of fun using the variety of resources!

The kit contains;

  • 6 weighted scarves
  • 6 smooth quoits
  • 6 x 10cm soft touch balls
  • 6 bean bags
  • 6 x 7cm foam balls
  • Drawstring kit bag
The drawstring bag is so handy to store everything in as often things outside get lost so easily - so having a bag to throw it all back in makes tidy up time with the little ones SO much easier! 

In addition to developing their gross motor skills and overall physical development, the children have also been using other skills as a result of the kit, including working on their sharing skills and teamwork, as you can see with the boys below who were playing with the hoop making up their own game similar to football.

The girls were working on their turn taking and physical development skills by throwing and catching the beanbag to each other.

The children enjoyed using the range of balls, bean bags, scarves and quoits.

The kit really helped children with their throwing and catching skills, often as practitioners we are so focused on getting all areas of the curriculum squeezed into the outdoor area that physical development opportunities can sometimes be overlooked at points - so this throwing and catching kit was a great way to focus the children on a specific physical skill.

The children then set up their own game using the hoops and took it in turns to try and throw the beanbags and balls into the hoops.

I know the Active Throwing and Catching Kit will be a firm favourite with my children for a long time to come, I love that the items are all different sizes meaning that children who are in the early stages of throwing and catching, as well as the more advanced children are all able to use the kit. If you would like to purchase your own Active Throwing and Catching Kit then you can click on the links throughout my profile which will take you to the Early Years Resources website, where you can also check out their wide range of other products.


I received this product for free to try out with my class. However, the review and opinions are my own and I have given a full and true reflection of how this product was used and tested in my classroom.
