Having a Ball (Pardon the Pun)

We decided this week to reinflate my "birth ball" (a standard fitness ball).  I doubt the Bibliophile remembers the many, many hours Daddy and I spent bouncing on this ball when he was a colicky infant.  And that's a good thing -- I'd much rather be seeing him enjoy it like this:
Forward roll
That was fun!
Bouncing
Hallway soccer
Human bowling


I will be linking this post up with ABC and 123, Tot Tuesdays, We Play and Play Academy.

Comment: What physical fun have your kids been up to this week?

My poor ball is sitting all lonely in a corner. Might be time to get it out and let it play :)

Christy said...

How fun! I love the human bowling.

My kids also love playing with my fitness ball! Although, they can't be quite as adventurous with it on our tile floors.

And I spent many hours bouncing a colickly Emma on it - what memories! Here's hoping your baby girl proves less colicky!

That last picture made me laugh! He looks like he's having a ball! ;) too bad I gave away my pilates ball awhile back.

The last picture is hilarious. Maybe I should inflate mine and see what transpires.

Too fun! My kids have been playing with one of these too, lately! Mostly, they crash into their tent (not on purpose... I think...) and it collapses. Sigh.

We did get Boo signed up for soccer though! Starts in a couple weeks!

Great idea. My daughter loves my ball. I need to find the pump to fill it up more so I can get back to using it for exercise!

Now I'm kicking myself I gave my exercise ball to my sister! We've been doing some jumping on the trampoline, walking, scooting and running. Just glad to be outdoors after many sick weeks indoors. Lots of fun!

I can just imagine the fun to be had with human bowling. Will have to give that one a go.

Those big balls are such great fun. My husband used to use one instead of an office chair for years.

My girls have a big pink ball and would love human bowling.

Such great pictures - making me smile. My girls are dancing round with tissue paper streamers as I type :) Thank you so much for sharing with the Play Academy.
