Paper Plate Paddle Ball

This game takes seconds to put together and creates so much laughter. My kids enjoyed this game for days! It's a definite keeper for rainy days.

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. balloon
  2. paper plates
  3. craft sticks - large
  4. masking tape
  5. markers (optional)
  1. We grabbed our supplies and I asked the kids to guess what we were making. They had no clue!

  2. We used markers to decorate the plates. While they were busy with this I blew up the balloon.

  3. We taped a large craft stick on the back of each plate. We used duct tape, but found out later that masking tape holds much better.

  4. The kids were starting to figure things out by this point and could hardly wait to get started.

  5. First, they hit it back and forth like tennis (giggling the entire time.) They also played a game of "don't let the balloon hit the floor." My two-year-old thought that was the best thing ever!

  6. Eventually they sat on the floor and hit the ball back and forth. So many options, so much fun and so easily put together!
