I finally finished making the bag pictured below that I knit out of grocery plastic bags. I think there will be many uses for this but so far I have used it in the following two ways.
I clipped the bag to the basketball stand and stored 4-5 balls in it. Then when I wanted to do a ball activity- I clipped it to the horse tack. The children then needed to reach far to their sides to reach into the bag for a ball, rotate their trunks and toss the ball into the hoop placed on the other side of the horse.
I also used the bag to carry activities on the trail. Now the horses can do the carrying for me. My favorite activities to use on the trail rides are:
- Pulling clothespins off the mane to insert into a small basket
- Stretch toys
- Small bottles filled with water and little plastic pieces to shake
