Materials: Several balloons
Age Range: 2-4 years; possibly older
Time filled: 15-20 minutes
We went to a friend's second birthday this past weekend. We left with a belly full of awesome rainbow cake and 2 goodie bags filled with, among other fun things, several balloons. So yesterday after she woke up from her nap, I blew them all up and let her have at it. Also fun to have on hand are cylindrical pillows to use as a bat and pieces of light-weight fabric to bounce the balloons around on. This one didn't last as long as I would have liked. She got bored fairly quickly and went from tossing the balloons to using them to hit the baby in pretty short order. At least they were balloons and not the drumsticks she tried to hit him with yesterday...
