Hello everyone! I know it's been awhile. I had twin girls on the 24th of January, and life is just now, finally, settling down! I am foresaking dishes and mopping, for a few minutes to myself on COM! I also wanted to share a GREAT game I found that's super easy!
Take a pole (PVC pipe, broomstick, even a large stick would work) and pound it into the ground far enough to be stable. Blow up a ballon, regular party variety, tie a string to the balloon and the other end to the stick/pole. I made mine hand somewhere between halfway to the ground and 3/4 the way to the ground. Now, my daughter and her cousin (ages 2 and nearly 4) love to just whack it back and forth with their hands, but it's also a lot of fun to give them squirt guns and let them shoot the balloon. It's like a safe, small version of tetherball for kids! It has been a huge hit for us and I'd love to hear if anyone else uses it and how it worked out for them!!!
