Ball Ramp

We buy lots of diapers around here, and we buy them by the box, but this can be made from any box. Just tape everything shut, cut a hole in one end, and cut along the sides and one end so you can push it back, as shown. Tape the "ramp" in place, and let your kids play! Mine loved to drop the balls down the hole and see how far they'd go...
And then they found out that by placing it horizontally, it's a whole new game! Run the ball down the ramp, and watch it go out the hole!

This was especially fun on our kitchen floor, and as soon as the wind dies down outside, we'll try it out on our sidewalk.

Here's the follow up! My husband, who saw your blog, made a box ramp for my 3 year old. He loved it! Later on in the day when I asked him if he had fun with it, he just grinned!
