A very wise mom of boys once told me that the best way to entertain a boy is to give him a ball, not a TV or a video game, but a real ball. Any ball will do. I think about that advice often when I need a quick idea for sending my boys outside. Boys love balls, they work like magic.
The great thing about Wiffle balls is that they can’t hurt anything! The balls were designed to be used in small areas, so your backyard will be fine (and so will your windows). Your boys can use a plastic bat or a wooden stick and have a lot of fun. The important thing is that they are outside. You can print off the game directions on the WiffleBall.com website, but they will have more fun making up their own games.
Next time you are trying to lure them off the couch, pull out the Wiffle balls and watch the smiles!
