DIY Ball Pit

Super-Tip Tuesday
Heather P., a Supermom of one, from Glendale, AZ, said:

For my son’s birthday party in January, we invited a kids of a variety of different ages. I wanted an activity that would appeal to all of them, while still keeping with the nautical theme that I had chosen. I decided to create my own ball pit.

I bought a small blow-up pool and a bag of 200 balls. I put the pool in the middle of the grass and all of the kids had a blast playing in the pool while the adults socialized and barbecued.

It knew that it would be a lot of fun at the birthday party, but I didn’t realize how great it would be after his party! We live in an apartment complex and have a small patio. After the party I put the pool and balls on our patio, and my son goes outside almost daily to play with them. When friends come over for playdates, they love to play outside in our ball pit too. I can’t think of something else that was less than $50 that has caused so much excitement at our house!

    in front of you.
