Are your kids ready for baseball season? Instead of just heading to the ballpark and sitting in the stands, the Dayton Dragons invite you to make family entertainment educational and fun by taking advantage of the learning opportunities that await you at Fifth Third Field in Dayton, OH.
If you're looking for educational things to do, check out these fun learning activities for kids, brought to you by your favorite baseball team in the Midwest:
- Keep Score: While it may seem like common sense, teaching your children how to keep score at a baseball game can be one of the easiest and most educational activities you can lead with little to no materials. When someone scores, teach them how to add. As the batter swings, encourage your kids to keep count of each pitch so that they understand the rules of the game.
- Play Match: Another easy thing to do at a baseball game is to challenge your kids to a little game of match. First, ask them to choose their favorite player, then see if they can memorize the number. As the game continues, see if they can memorize the names and numbers of the entire baseball team.
- Watch Speeds: For those of you with older kids, grab some seats close to home plate. As the pitcher throws the ball, ask your kids to keep up with the pitch speed. Talk with them about the advantages of throwing the ball faster and why curve balls can't go as quickly as other pitches.
