Exercise, core strength, vestibular input, movement, etc…..all important things for typical child development.
As long as you have rope around, a swing attachment (indoor or outdoor), and a Five Below store nearby, you can make your own ball swing for $5. We found this super hopper ball (AKA hippity hop) at our local Five Below store for $5.
I took a rope and made a loop at both ends like this, then I attached a carabiner to each end. One end loops around the handle of the super hopper ball and the other end hooks onto the swing set or ceiling mount.
Ready for swinging.
I can’t guarantee this wont eventually tear, but for $5 we will take the fun while we can.
