This is such a great activity for your kids to keep them entertained and it doesn't make a big mess which is awesome! I had these baskets sitting around my house. I had a package of little wooden balls in my craft drawer, which turned out to be perfect, but honestly, you can use whatever objects you have lying around. Then I just grabbed my kitchen tongs. And that's how our "Homemade Crane Game" was born.
She LOVED it! Who knew cleaning up could be so fun???
She requests to play this game often. I was thinking that for older children who may not be as entertained by putting the balls into baskets, that you could do a timer and see how fast they can do it.
