- Golf tees
- Golf balls
I had a bad mommy moment when I realized that I only had two Styrofoam cubes for the twins and none for Little C. Poor forgotten 3rd child. In my defense, when I got the cubes, she was in the putting- everything-in-her-mouth phase, and so I didn’t get her one for her protection. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. You can find lots of great Styrofoam shapes at the dollar store. I also found a floral foam wreath there that I planned to use for something or other, but I used it in a pinch for this children’s activity.
I started out just giving the kids their foam and some golf tees and showed them how they could push them into the foam. They all took this quite seriously as you can tell.
I love how hard they had to work in some cases to push the golf tee in. Work those hand muscles B!
The kids were doing a great job with the golf tees, so I added some golf balls. I showed them how they could balance the golf balls on the tees. This required more dexterity and skill, but the twins were able to do it.
“A” tries to blow off her ball.
Little C discovered that the wreath also makes a great hat!
