Bye-Bye, Balloon!

Got a couple of helium-filled balloons at that last party you went to? These are great for your toddler to do whole-body play with, as she pulls them down and watches them pop back up (hint: they’re better to use after they’ve lost some of their “lift” and can float more or less at toddler-height!). She’ll learn concepts like “up” and “down” while enjoying the pure fun that balloons just are.
