Ball Pit {Playing With Baby, Day 14}

I did a little brainstorming session to come up with a list of fun new activities for my ten month old and decided to share them with you over the next month in a series called 20 Days of Playing With Baby.  None of these ideas are Earth shattering, supper cool, never been done before activities but maybe you haven’t tried them before or maybe they will help spark a fun new activity of your own.


Ball Pit {Playing With Baby, Day 14} -

For this activity I used:

  • Ball pit balls (I found mine online for about $15)
  • Crib or Pack ‘n Play

This summer I bought 100 ball pit balls for a game we were playing at our family reunion.  I decided to throw all of the balls into the Pack ‘n Play to make a mini ball pit for Henry.  This time around I put the balls in his crib and let him play.Ball Pit {Playing With Baby, Day 14} -

Then he decided to play the “drop it on the floor” game.  He would crouch down to pick up a ball.Ball Pit {Playing With Baby, Day 14} -

Then drop it over the side and watch it hit the floor.Ball Pit {Playing With Baby, Day 14} -
