Introduction: How to Make Juggling Balls

Nice juggling balls can cost over $45. Make better ones for under $5. They're a great way to make money while traveling, just make some balls and then go juggle on a corner. Sell them to kids and teach them how to juggle. Watch the video bellow if you want to skip all boring reading stuff.


Step 1: Get Everything Together

You will need the following:

Tennis Balls
Balloons
Hand Snippers
Dirt'

All this stuff is best bought at Target, because Wal-Mart sucks.

Step 2: Cut a Hole and Then Fill It With Dirt

Cut a hole in the tennis ball, and then fill it with dirt. The smaller the hole, the better, and you can keep the hole open by squeezing the ends of the ball.

Step 3: Wrap It Up!

Wrap your juggling balls with two balloons, the ends cut off of both. Watch the video if you want to know how far to cut. Once at least two balloons are on, pull the end out and cut it so no nub sticks off.

     I once tried to make juggling balls out of just water balloons and rice. it was all going well until i realized that one of the baloons had an air pocket which caused it to pop. rice everywhere. bad idea. this looks much better and i will give it a try

    im sorry but i dont want to sound mean or anything i just dont thing i could ever sell a modified tennis ball... not a bad idea but not exactly what i thought it was gonna be

    I made some with racket balls. I drilled a small hole in the side, used an injector and filled them with water, then I sealed the hole with hot glue. I just thought I'd throw that out there if anyone wanted another idea. I didn't think of the balloon idea though. I really like it. I'll have to do that. Thank you! It's a great instructable.
