How to Keep Kids Entertained

Have you ever wondered desperately how to keep your three highly active children entertained while you're waiting for an unknown period of time in a small enclosed space? 

I have. 

And that's when I invented Cotton Ball Baseball


I'm the pitcher. The three boys are the batters. 


If they make contact with the cotton ball, it's a hit and they get on base. No running, just keep track in your head of what base you're on. 


Three strikes and you're out. Four balls and you're on first. If I hit you with the cotton ball, you're on first. If the cotton ball sticks to your shirt and you can't find it, it's a foul ball.

If you swing and hit the cotton ball so hard it hits the wall behind me - well that's a HOME RUN! 



Keep your eye on the ball, kiddo. 


I'm not going to say "genius" but I won't disagree with you if you suggest that.
