Ball Activity: Climbing Frame + Balls = Fun Times

If there is one thing I try to do, it is to make sure that a large majority of my crafts and activities use items that you may already have at home. This ball activity is a prime example of that. You really don’t need any thing fancy for this and it has provided BB with hours of entertainment over the past week.

Make sure that you follow my toddlers activity board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Balls
  • Something to roll them down

A few weeks ago we got a nice new climbing frame for BB. It is made by the company Quadro and is absolutely amazing. My brother and I had a set when we were younger and spent most summers playing on it. The best thing about Quadro is that you can take them down and rebuild them into something else.

BB loves it. He loves climbing up and down it and going down the slide. As I sat there watching him one day I though what would happen if we added a few balls to this. The result was hours of fun for him. He spent ages dropping off of the side or pushing them down the, climbing down to collect them, then repeating it over and over again.

It just goes to show that you don’t need anything fancy. If you don’t have a climbing frame or slide, you can always do this down the stairs (with adult supervision), or set up a ramp using cardboard. Failing that a trip to the local playground with the balls would work.

These sorts of activities are such a wonderful way for little ones to explore the world around them. BB was learning all sorts of things through this exploration. As well as helping develop his gross motor skills.

If your little one enjoyed this ball activity then be sure to check out my furniture obstacle coursering toss game, DIY shuffle board, and balloon tennis game.
