Reaction Time Challenge
- Supplies Needed: Everything & Nothing
Our reaction time is something that can consistently improve. It is not based on age, sex/gender, or anything other than our brain. Yet your brain is like a muscle and you need to work it out all the time for it to be strong. As a result, reaction times change as we get older because we begin to grow as people. Athletes have fantastic reaction times due to having to think split second about when to do things. Due to this, kids need to work on their reaction time.
What better way is there to do this than by making a cool game out of it that even parents will enjoy? To play the game, you need at least two people competing and another person to throw objects at the children. When we say objects, we mean things that won’t hurt them because obviously. You’ll throw something like a stuffed animal and continue to do it faster and faster, testing their reactions. The winner is the one with the most objects at the end.
