Going through some boxes in our spare room today I found some balloons from Little Bee’s birthday. Initially I was just going to blow them up and let him play with them. However, he has a habit of biting the balloons which results in them bursting in his face causing floods of tears and heaving sobs.
Seeing that the weather was nice outside I decided to take the balloons into the garden and tie them to the washing line. This was a huge hit with Little Bee. He ran back and forwards bashing the balloons for 15 minutes.
This is a really quick, cheap and simple activity and great for toddlers,
- Physical activity
- Hand eye co-ordination
- and of course, its lots of fun!
*Always supervise toddlers when doing this activity as burst balloons are a choking hazard and toddlers can get caught up tangled in the string.
