It has been a baseball kind of summer. My youngest started t-ball this year, so there have been games to watch as well as informal ball tossing in the backyard. In our family, we also love to spend time together enjoying "family fun nights" (or "family fun afternoons"), so this summer we loved learning about baseball. In addition to the obvious baseball-related activities (playing and practicing the game), here are a few extra things we've tried.
Stuffed Animal Baseball:
We emptied out the hat basket in the closet and discovered we have quite a collection of baseball caps! We paired this collection with our collection of stuffed animals, and made an instant baseball team (actually 2 teams). My five year old named the teams.
