yoga ball storage?

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am introducing flexible seating in my classroom this year. I want to make it as easy as possible for my janitor to clean my room. I have a plan on how to store all the pillows etc. But what I am struggling with is how to store my 5 yoga balls. They are about 65 cm in size. They won't stay on the table because they roll off. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Years ago I remember seeing someone buy metal pie tins and the kids would put a tin in the middle of a desk and the ball would sit in the tin and not roll away. They may even sell these at the dollar store!

Or perhaps a looped pool noodle so it doesn't roll away when a kid gets up? And they could put the looped pool noodle on top of the table and then the ball.

Pie tins are great as pp stated. They stack nicely for storage during the day and are easily available when needed at the end if the day. And cheap, don't forget cheap.

I have some chairs and stools so when those are put up, the kids put the balls on them. The legs of the chair help the stay in place.

Another cheap idea is to buy those plastic picnic plates that you put a paper plate into. The balls sit nicely in them on the desks. I've also used frisbees but they might be more than a dollar.

My flexible seating Facebook swears by upside down frisbees as a base for stability balls.

Thank you all for your responses. I think I can get some frisbees from the gym teacher. I will also give the paper plate things a try, I think I have those.

I just found out about this. Take a pool noodle and make a circle out of it. Join it together with duct tape. The balls stay in place on the floor and if you need them off the floor, just put the noodle on the table and then the ball. The ball stays !

I put sand in mine. I use a funnel and pour a small amount into the ball. The sand weights it down and makes it so it doesn't roll. Works fabulously!

I love the sand idea!

I plan to introduce flexible seating this year and I didn't even think about making it easy to clean. Thanks for the reminder!

I've seen the pool noodle used and it seems to work really well.

I tried using a frisbee on the table. The frisbee seemed to work! I never thought of the sand idea. I may try that next year. I want to try pool noodles but I can not find them any more.
