I do this activity that doubles as a gift and time filler at the end of the year each year, but it could also be a beginning of year thing as well with a little bit of tweaking! The kids LOVE this souveneir to take home and play with all summer long. Swing on in to Mrs. Miner's Monkey Business to find out what we do with these balls and grab a pokey pin freebie, too! Are you on summer break yet? I have 4 more days and then I am D-O-N-E and MMMB will be open full time for the season!
