He shoots, he scores!
I am forever trying to find ways to keep my guys busy, especially when i need to be hands off for a few minutes. These activities need to be safe, simple to setup, and provide some kind of learning or physical output.
A big favorite is cup ball. You just need a plastic cup and a ball – ping pong balls work best, but we use bouncy balls too. I prefer one for each kid. The kids just try to bounce the ball into the cup. You get a point every time your ball goes in the cup. Kids can make up rules as they go, too – like how far away you need to be from the cup.
Cup ball keeps my kids busy, but it also helps them learn to keep trying when they don’t make it.
Hope you and your littles enjoy this too!
