The best thing is start the little off right by letting him catch them with his hands, that is the most fun for them. I started my son off at 6 catching with his hands. Remember the only reason why you're out there is to show the littles how to do things. I hold my sons lifevest on the back so he can reach down and catch them with his hands. Don't use the Q-beam it takes away one hand. Send me an e-mail and I can send you the procedures on how to build your own headlight. I have built 6. Will cost about $30 to build and it is a hardhat that attaches to a 12 volt battery. Awesome light.
