Who has been or is currently doing KFC mini-cricket with their little ones? We did it with Cameron and it really is super cute to watch. It is a great way to get them involved in sports from an early way because it is organised and they learn the rules of the game.
Obviously sport is a fun way for kids to stay fit but there are so many other benefits to getting your child involved in something like KFC Mini-Cricket.
- Mini-cricket helps with hand-eye co-ordination. This is one of the best sports to help kids with their hand eye-coordination because any position they are in, needs to the focus on this. A lot of the practise activities involve catching and throwing.
- Cricket builds stamina. Cricket is not a quick game, even mini-cricket. It can move pretty quickly or it can be pretty slow which teachers he players stamina, they have to stick it out and stay focused until the end.
- It encourages team work. Cricket is a team sport. Every person has a role to play and if they don’t do what they need to, the team will suffer.
- Practise makes perfect. Kids soon learn that the more effort they put in, the better they will get and the more results they will achieve.
- KFC Mini-cricket also teaches kids that sport can be fun. Yes, sport is about winning and being the best but it can also be fun.
