Frog Juggling
Did you know that Juggling dates back to ancient Egypt, China and Greece and Diabolos originated from China in 1792? Our Bag recipients, whom often have to quarantine, enjoy activities like juggling and Diabolo yoyos that they can play with inside or in their backyard.

So get out the Juggling balls and Diabolo yoyos and bring on the Power of Play!
