DIY Ball Pit

While doing some last minute holiday shopping in Target the other day I was inspired by a bag of balls.

I had seen lots of DIY ball pit options on Pinterest so I thought it would be fun to create our own little “city living version” of the classic ball pit.little boy

Since we don’t have a crazy amount of room in our home for lots of bigger toys, we have to get a little creative when living in the city & keeping my little man entertained {which is tough as the weather gets really cold & we can’t be outside as much!} So I picked up the last little bag of balls {only $14 for a bag of 150 – I thought it was a pretty good deal!} and went home to have some fun.


Little man is at the perfect age for this kind of play. He loves to kick around in the basket & throw the balls all over the place. Brooks knocks the balls together and has a ball playing in the ball pit! We also borrowed a play yard {aka – baby jail} from a friend and it’s fun to toss the balls in there as well, to keep them a little more contained!

so big

Here’s how you can make you own {just in case you haven’t figured it out on your own!} 🙂

What You Will Need:

a baby

a bag of balls

a old laundry basket

a glass of wine {optional}


How To:

Because this ball pit provides endless entertainment. Trust.


And because a ball pit makes everything awesome, no matter what age!


Next on the agenda, teaching little man to clean up all the 150 balls after flinging them all around the room!



What’s the best DIY or Pinterest idea you’ve ever tried {successfully!}?
