What can you do with a couple of balloons?
[Ideas are welcome!]
I blew up a couple balloons and the first thing we did was:play Balloon Badminton!
I put together two rackets with paper plates and Henry’s drumsticks.
I just scotch taped them on. We did have a couple instances of them falling apart.
You could use paint stir sticks, paper towel holders, or anything long and sturdy! [and staple them instead of using scotch tape!]
Henry and I didn’t make it a formal game of Badminton.[if you do, tell me your trick on how to make a preschooler do that...]But we did try a few things:1) hit the balloon [hand-eye coordination]2) keep the balloon off the ground [balance/steadiness]3) hit the balloon back and forth to each otheracross the play table or other object [team play]
