Why is wave nature of matter not more apparent in our daily observations?

Since,the de-Broglie wavelength is given by the relation

λ = h/mv

As the value of Plank’s constant is very small,so the wavelength associated with ordinary object is so small and is difficult to observe.In our daily observations we deal with the objects having larger mass and smaller velocity,that is why the wave nature of such objects is not more apparent in our daily life.But for the small objects like electrons and neutrons etc., the wave behavior of particle is dominant.It is because of the reason that mass of electron and neutron are very small as compared to an ordinary tennis ball.
