Description of how game/toy can be used to fit the categories: The game Flush is a fun game that can help players practice a variety of physical skills. Body scheme can be practiced by playing this game because the player must have awareness of their body parts and where they are to be able to complete all of the parts for this game. For example, the player must be aware of where their head is moving, and then where their hands are so they can launch the marbles into the toilet. Eye/Hand coordination is incorporated into this game because players must coordinate the movement of their head to grab the marbles they can see with their headband and then take the marble off the headband and place it on the launch pad. Depth perception is practiced in this game because the player must be able to judge how far the marbles are from them and be able to judge how far they need to move their head with the headband to pick up the marbles. Motor planning is incorporated into this game because the player must be able to plan where they need to move their head to be able to catch the marbles on the headband and then plan their aim and force they use to launch the marble into the toilet.
