Activity #171: Have a ball

An oldie republished for stir-crazy parents and kids.

This morning, Milo was throwing train tracks at me. And some legos. And some scrambled egg. And a fork. It reminded me that I need to harness this energy and find something he could throw.

Beach balls, like bubbles and 2- and 4-packs of crayons, are items I hoard and keep with me for when the need strikes.

For easy indoor fun:

  1. Inflate a large plastic beach ball.
  2. Roll the ball to your seated baby.
  3. See if he will roll it back.

A baby this age might not catch on very quickly, but he will certainly be amused.
