How wonderful an idea is this! It’s a simple baby and toddler play space using cut up pool noodles and balls. You could easily set this up at home for your baby or child and enjoy watching them play all day.
As many of you already know, I host a fabulous Facebook group called ‘Activities for Kids‘ and a community that is seriously jam packed full of creative types, like Emily Call Hepworth who shared this photograph with our community. How brilliant!
Recommended age : 6 months +
(Strict and active supervision required at all times)
To make one of Emily’s baby play space using cut up pool noodles and balls you will need –
- Baby paddling pool
- plastic balls
- 3-4 pool noodles cut into large pieces
- Time to supervise your child playing
This is a wonderful play space for your child as they can explore the pieces within the paddling pool and feel the different textures and shapes. This is also really great for their eye development and learning to focus on an object they are holding in front of their body.
I also really love that all the cut up pieces of pool noodle and plastic balls can later be used for other activities as your child grows. Who would have thought that pool noodles could be used in a way that would support your child’s various stages of development? It’s so wonderful.
Is this something your child would enjoy?
