This how-to video breaks down serve and return into 5 simple steps  and features adults and young children doing each step together.

Serve and Return



In the first few years of life, more than 1 million new neural connections (these make the brain work) are formed in a baby’s brain every second. Children are born ready to learn and they depend on parents, family members, and other caregivers to develop skills. How the brain grows is strongly affected by the child’s every day experiences and with plenty of opportunities to play and explore.
