Wednesday goodies: balance tape

3

2

Last weekend I was losing my mind with the crazy kid running around the house. I had quite a few deadlines I needed to meet, and the craziness was very distracting. Ha! SO, a random desperate thought came to mind: hmmm… she loves to balance, tell the husband to put a line of tape on the floor. Let’s pretend-balance!

It was a success. She was distracted, got a bit of energy out, and I got some work done. We’ve had the tape down since Saturday and she still loves it. I’ll probably pull it up this weekend, so I don’t have to deal with goopy tape later. BUT, for now… she gets a week of balance fun. Maybe we’ll try this trick again in a few months?

Great idea… may have to try it with my kiddo! Possibly use painters tape to avoid tape stickiness?

Cute! Great idea, I get the kids foam stickers they don't mess up the walls and let them decorate.

Nice shots, and great idea :-) I have had to do that when I was young, with a book on my head. Thanks for WW.

this is a great idea. I teach montessori and the kids looove to walk on the circle line. Next time maybe she can try holding something like a bell and see how quiet it can be while she balances, or something on her head. :) you are a creative fantastic mom :)

Oh, that's a easy distraction! I've been meaning to do something similar for "tracks" for Q's trains so I don't have to keep tripping over train track pieces, but I keep forgetting.
