Balls in a Basin

What to do:

  • Ping-pong balls make good toys for toddlers and older children. They are inexpensive, fun, and safe.
  • Ping-pong balls also make great bath toys for older toddlers.
  1. Have children push balls under the water and watch them pop up to the surface.
  2. Place the pan on the floor, patio or lawn and watch children try to submerge the balls.
  • Keep a watchful eye on children while engaged in this water game. Even a small amount of water in a dishpan could be hazardous to a small child who falls face first into the container.
