My little girl was so fascinated by the colour prints the balls created on the paper, with streaks of different colours running through. She also learned to manipulate the box like tilting it to get the balls rolling from left to right, top to bottom. Exploring with balls of different sizes has also got her making a discovery of different patterns and how the thickness of the lines correlated with the size of the balls.


This activity is easy and fun and is sure to spellbound your child!
Go and let your child have a ball of a time!
