This weeks theme at Unplug your Kids is "J"
We thought of Jam, Jelly (Jello), Jesus, Jumping and a few other things that actually began with "G" - gotta love kids and their phonetics...It's interesting how few words begin with J. I was leaning towards something that involved Jelly... but then remembered these juggling balls the kids made at school for Children's Week
Juggling Balls it was then
The smart teacher at school 'prepackaged' rice in snack size ziplock bags. Then, all the children had to do was scrunch up the bag and stretch the balloon over the baggie. We did the same thing, but I also used flour in half of the bags. The balls filled with flour feel better - but will be more mess if they break open. I used around 1/3 to 1/2 cup of rice or flour in each bag.

Now all that is left is to practice our Juggling Skills :)
