This activity is divided into 2 parts: creating the rackets and playing ping pong with the rackets and the balloon.
First, glue the wooden stick to the paper plate with the wooden stick sticking out of the plate. The wooden stick is going to be where you hold the racket so the length of stick that comes out of the paper plate should be at least 4 inches.
Once the sticks are glued, use the crayons to color or write on the paper plates.
Inflate the balloon.
Hold the paper plate racket and bounce the ball around.
If done in a group setting, you can instruct the kids to use the paper plate to bounce the balloon from one to another while playing a ping pong game.
