Fun with Table-Tennis for Toddlers


Age: From 2 years old

Ideas:
1. Play it against a wall

2. For older children, use masking tape to form the center line. Then sit down and play against each other.

3. Use the dining table as table-tennis table and play against each other at home.

Additional Information:
I accidentally saw this at Tiger and bought it to play with J when he is older. However, when we played this today during bedtime, he enjoyed it so much. At this age, J (2Y1M29D) doesn't know how to play table-tennis, but he watched with great interest the demonstration made by daddy and he enjoyed hitting the ball with the bat. He also enjoyed running after the balls and picking them up. Table-tennis is one of the most popular games in China. Thus, it is also good for J to learn about his heritage, so that he would not be a stranger to this game. It is a good way to get J to exercise, although bedtime may not be the best time to do so. Since I am a working mom, I have no other time to do so. Thus, this evening's bedtime was a little too active, and I took a longer time to settle down J as a result :-(

It is not necessary to have the table-tennis table for this game. Just use the wall as shown in the picture for toddlers. For older children, use masking tape to form the center line. Sit on the floor and play against each other. You can also use the dining table as the table-tennis table, instead of sitting on the floor.
