Balloon Play


We had a birthday in our house today, so there were balloons around to play with! It's funny because I never thought to use balloons specifically for play (especially because of the danger of popping them!) but it actually turns out that they are a brilliant toddler toy!  

Ethan loved throwing the balloon up in the air and watching it fall, he loved throwing it and the best part, because it falls so slowly he was able to catch the balloon when I threw it to him.  Such a great activity for hand eye coordination, something that's so difficult to learn when a ball is coming at you quickly, but much easier when it's slowed down by a floating balloon.  Fantastic for Ethan's Physical Development and lots of fun too :)
