Four years ago we bought an older home, we have been in the remodel process ever since tackling one room at a time. Our home came with a “Hot Tub Room”. Most the room is glass and brick and has a huge blue hot tub….. cool right? Well not really, the hot tub is really old and does not work and has cracks in it. The room was built around the hot tub so there is not really a good way to get it out, or get a new one in.
We were going to take a saw to it and rip it out in pieces, but then we would be left with a huge dirt hole….. THEN one day I had an idea. What if we filled the hot tub with BALLS and turned it into a ball pit for the kids to play in. The kids LOVE IT, their friends love it even more, and I was just happy to see this be a usable space in our home.
SO if you happen to have an old hot tub at your house…. think about turning it into a ball pit for your kids :).
We bought the first 1000 balls online, and have continued to add to them over the past year. We find them at 2nd hand stores and yard sales quite often for a great price.
