Blow Up Balloons! All different sizes! Let them run wild with them!!! Show them how to bounce them, kick them or even play balloon tennis! Try putting a Pool Noodle between two chairs and play Balloon Volleyball! I put Penelope in her crib and filled it with balloons and she laughed so hard throwing them out of the crib and just playing with them! They are so light that they can’t break much! 😉 (Supervise them so they don’t bite, pop, and possibly inhale the balloon!!!!!)


Simple balloon tennis game for a quick energy buster. Balloon tennis makes a great indoor gross motor play idea. Balloons are always a hit with kids.
