Lately, Stella has been really interested in throwing, catching, and rolling balls. She throws them all around the playroom and walks or crawls after them, often giggling. I was thinking of ways to expand on her interest and I remembered seeing a baby pool ball pit over at Play at Home Mom a long while ago. I jumped on Amazon Prime and ordered a small inflatable baby pool and a set of 100 ball pit balls! I set it up in the playroom last night and Stella discovered it this morning. She was thrilled, to say the least. It’s pretty much the only thing we played with all morning.
She would wave her hands through the balls and say, “Splash!” as if she remembers splashing in a pool like this last summer! (I wouldn’t put it past her — this girl amazes me with her memory every single day!)
She laid down and told me she was going “night night” in the ball pit. LOL 🙂
I plan to add items like ramps and tubes to the ball area in the playroom soon (or on a larger scale outside) to expand on her interest even more, so stay tuned! 🙂
