Activities For a Platform Swing

The weather is amazing here and we have been playing outside.  Last summer Adeline's grandpa built her this great platform swing and we have been doing many different activities on it.

First - Puzzles, both sitting on the tummy.  The whole time the swing is moving gently to challenge her balance and work the core strength.

Being on her tummy works on upper body strength. 

 Second - Adding rings to stacker both sitting and on the tummy.

Third -  Adding pegs to a pegboard.  I had to hold this in front of her but it worked great.

Fourth - Reading flashcards.

Fifth - popping bubbles.  I do not have a picture of Adeline popping bubble but this is also fun to do.

  8. Howdy exceptional website! Does running a blog such as this require a massive
    amount work? I have no expertise in computer programming
    however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyhow, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog
    owners please share. I know this is off topic but I simply needed to
    ask. Thank you!
