Keep It Up!!
As I continue to think of activities that can be done at home with little to no equipment, I remembered one of our favorites that we haven’t played in a while – Keep it Up. I think that we have been avoiding it for a while because of our giant puppy likes to destroy balloons! We can only play when he is super passed out.
This is a very simple activity that is great for practicing hand-eye coordination. It can be played inside or out, solo or with other family members. All you need is a balloon or a light ball to strike into the air. Once the ball is tossed into the air, the goal is to keep it from hitting the floor. For us, we count the amount of times we can hit the balloon before it falls. This way, we create a high score for ourselves, something to try and beat every time we play!
