Yesterday, a no-school, ice/snow day, called for some new activities. After a long time playing outside and then with kinetic sand, we needed something new! I started flipping through some toddler books and found this hanging ball activity. It was a HIT! (hahaha) We hung a ball with string from the center of a door way. My toddler (almost 3 years) had fun trying to hit it with a stick (or bat). He also liked to throw it and catch it as it swung back. My husband and dad took turns “pitching” it to him. A lap around the kitchen for a home run! This is great hand/eye coordination activity. Simple, cheap – my favorite kind!
