Toddler Activity of the Week: Stick Painting and Bouncy Balls

With my very active and extroverted six year old niece here, I had to keep coming up with things to do!  So the girls did two things.

The first an epic fail: Bouncy Balls.  But only because they never bounced.  Ha!  They did, however, keep all 3 girls interested and entertained in kneading them for a half hour.  So in my book a success.  In the eyes of an older preschooler, this would be an epic failure.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

But by far my favorite activity of the week: telling all 3 girls to go outside and pick out 10 sticks to paint with and see how they used their sticks on the paper.  Hilarious messy fun 🙂
