Play Everyday

365…ok 366 days of simple, inexpensive and wildly fun 2-year-old play!

Balloon Yo-Yo

on January 29, 2012

Here’s an easy 2 for 1 activity, especially if you’ve already made the Squishy Balls. Between an over-worked mind and my desire to just have a lazy Sunday this was a super easy activity that gave us a nice play break and a chance to giggle together.

  • Balloon
  • Flour, sand or salt (water would be great for an outdoor summer toy)
  • Rubber band

I literally just cut a rubber band and tied it around one of the squishy balls we’d made.  At the time Noah was having a snack (or doing something??) in the other room so I set it on the table to pull out later in the day when he would inevitably become bored.  Little bugger came in and found it early though.  So we played and laughed and I did the best picture taking I could, considering I didn’t have time to put clothes on my boy before pulling out the yo-yo.
