For endless fun, make your kids their very own ball pit at home!

Play-places are sprouting up like mushrooms. They’re almost everywhere lately. Although they are quite tempting, I refuse to bring my children there because I have heard several horror stories from my co-parents. Apparently, some kids have acquired foot and mouth disease from the play-places, specifically the ball pits. Well, these may be isolated cases but I won’t risk it.

As a mother, I don’t want to deprive my kids of the experience of playing in ball pits. So guess what I did? I made a ball pit at home. It’s a fairly easy project that involves connecting PVC pipes and putting in some netting. You and your husband, partner, or friend can work on this and finish in less than a day.

You can go big or go small - the choice is yours.
