Homemade Bouncy Ball

Encourage your kids to produce their own toys. Start with a Bouncy Ball!
When Mania was trying out Homemade Play Dough, I was wondering how to encourage my son to create his own toys. I deeply believe that children should get involved in the process of toys production. Firstly, because they take more care about toys they make themselves and secondly, they value their own work more.

I like when my son gets crafty, I can see sparkles in his eyes when he boasts of his own products. I’m also very proud of him. Now it’s time we experimented with a Homemade Bouncy Ball by Desiree the owner of The 36th AVENUE. As long as you have the ingredients the project is quick and straightforward. Obviously, my supervision will be indispensable but we’re both enthusiastic about the idea.

Do your children like playing with a bouncy ball? Let them create their own designs and don’t forget to show us the results on our fan page.

    Hello! I have a problem, what’s the measure of 1 Tb because I’m from Spain and I don’t know which quantity is in liters for example. Thank you :)
