We also tried rolling the beach ball under the swinging children, which again got lots and lots of giggles, especially when the little legs managed to bop the beach ball. (And in case you were wondering, yes, we were very safe. Two hands held on to the chains at all times and nobody actually stood in the way of swinging children!)
So, what do you get when you combine a beach ball with a swing set? A whole lot of fun, that’s what!
It all started with a challenge: Can you swing while holding a beach ball between your legs?
Why of course!
After proving what incredible beach ball holding abilities we had, we moved on to other fun.How about beach ball kicking while swinging? No pictures, since this involved Mom tossing the beach ball at little legs while they were swinging. I missed more often than not, but boy was it fun!
Impromptu fun… is there anything better?
