Take a red balloon. Use a funnel and put rice inside. Once it is full, blow
a little air into the balloon and tie it. Take a sharpie marker and add the details to make it look like a ladybug. Have the children put them on their head and balance them. These would work great for a relay race. The air
will leak out of these so don't blow the air in until the day you plan to use them.
If you have little ones who benefit from "stress balls", make these only don't
add air to them. They make great stress manipulatives.
