Crumpled-Paper Balls

Teach your child cause and effect with a crumpled-paper ball. Turn it into a game with lots of different-weight paper to crumple into balls (construction paper, newspaper, tissue paper, etc.). Add to the fun by setting out a couple of plastic bowls or bins on the floor, and having your child practice tossing the paper balls into the bowls.
