For this all you need is a piece of poster board. Then all you’ll do, just like in the Toddler Air Hockey activity, fold up the sides so that you have a couple of inches border all around the play space.
Then find a couple of wooden spoons or cooking utensils that might work, and make a few slits on the side to put them in. Then find a small, light ball to put inside and let your toddler move the spoons back and forth and to move the ball around. You can cut out a section on either end to make a “goal” or just have fun moving the ball around the box.
- Put a couple balls in the field to push around.
- Let your child draw on the posterboard before you make it into a foosball field. Maybe color it in green for grass.
- You can even draw a few stick people and tape them to the ends of the spoon to make it more like a foosball game.
