Aren’t toddlers the cutest? My toddler, “New Kid”, loves to throw balls around. Maybe this is not so good in a small apartment! Lately I’ve been keeping him entertained with a “ball in a box”. I wish I’d thought of it when he was younger, because it’s perfect for babies, too.
All I did was put a ball or other small toy inside a clear plastic container so he can shake it and watch it roll around.
Sometimes he even plays with it by himself for more than 2 minutes before trying to take the lid off to get at the goods.
The best kid of ball to use is either a sky bounce ball like this (shown in photo). Ping pong balls (I recommend the yellow ones for contrast, instead of white) are extra fun because they bounce around so much, especially if you add a couple for them.
No fancy, expensive apps or electronics needed.
