Ball Tube

I made this ball tube from a poster mailer (UPS store), color duct tape, and a basket of ping pong balls. My kiddos LOVE it. I used the back side of a shelf that has a dry erase board on it. [a safe surface to attach the strong tape to]

I simply taped the tube at an angle and provided the balls with a basket to catch them in. There are ten balls by the by and when I introduced this material to the children I counted each ball before sending it down the tube. I have to smile when I notice a two year old friend counting each ball before she sends it down the tube.

*This work could be created using smaller tubes (paper towel rolls) if your children are older and the objects that fit threw are not at risk of being eaten.

What are you waiting for? Get the ball rolling :)

at the little play centre I used to go to the staff had made a massive one of these out of old PET bottles and duct tape, the toddlers loved it!

This is a great idea! We will have to try it using various sizes of tubes. Thanks for sharing!

Love the "temporayness". I visited a center recently that had large tubing attached to cinderblock with screws (outside) She didn't put enough tilt on the pipe so the balls don't roll as well. They also had rain gutter parts attached to the wall. That was cool cuz you could see the balls in action.
