Ball posting is another very basic activity for babies and toddlers. Plonking the balls in through the hole and learning how to shake them back out again is absorbing and clear containers add to the interest. Ball posting is great for playpen time and mat time, but not as good for table time or highchair time simply because the balls fall off and roll away.
- The child posts the balls through the hole and tips them back out again by shaking the container.
- Practical life
- Fine motor development
EQUIPMENT & MATERIALS:
- Container with lid (cut a hole into the lid slightly larger than the balls)
- Balls or other objects to post and shake out again
