One thing I love to do with the kids is find items around the house that aren’t actually toys, but that can easily be used in play. Large exercise balls fit the bill perfectly, and here’s some simple fun Veronika and I had with one today.
First, I tapped on the ball; it made a perfect vibrating drum. Have fun with this, alternating the rhythm fastfastfastfast and slow slow slow.
Then I placed Veronika on her tummy on the ball and rocked it ever so slightly.
This is a fantastic way to build muscles if our little one is still doing tummy time, but even as a “big kid” Veronika loved it.
