Cheap Wii Alternative

My mom has a Wii. Caleb played it a lot when we were down in Oklahoma. His favorites are boxing and the 2 person run on Wii Fit. It has been a couple of weeks since we left Oklahoma and he still asks multiple times a day to play those games. He was just about to break me into begging and pleading to Santa to bring us a Wii. Then, he came up with this:

Wii boxing on the cheap.

Get 4 balls. These are the kind that you find in ball pits.

Keep two for yourself and give two to your opponent (sister).

Say, "Round One."

Start boxing.

Luckily this has not been the cause of any of yet. They "hit" each other nicely with the balls and pretend to get knocked out. Then they count and hop back up again.

Maybe I won't have to beg Santa for a Wii after all.


  1. That is so funny! Thankfully your kids are big enough to not tackle each other (not possible with a 3 and 1 yo).

    Wii boxing is great, and we don't have one either...
