Then I gave the kids a couple of balls and let them go crazy. It was a ball-catching free-for-all! They had a blast and are entertained by this game for up to 30 minutes at a stretch. If they were older and could play catch with the jugs, that would probably be a lot of fun too.
There is also some very involved and complex imagination game that Haley & Preston have come up with on their own... something to do with the balls (which they have named Zoey and Blink) who run away and need to be caught and taken care of. The jugs become cages, beds, carseats, and who knows what else. Lots of time spent playing this game as well. Brekken is happy just carrying his ball around and showing it to us. =)
So that's what's working for me this week. Check out the Works for Me Wednesday blog carnival at We Are That Family to see what's working for others!
