Introduction: Juggling Clubs Made From Old Newspapers
If you're interested in club juggling and want to recycle newspaper, this is an excellent way of doing it.
This is how I made my first clubs, back when I learned to juggle clubs. They're definitely not as well-balanced as "proper clubs", but with a bit of practice, they're quite jugglable.
+ Six newspapers (ide3ally about the same page count and size)
+ Knife or scissors
Find a quiet spot, with enough flat space to allow you to work. You'll need six newspapers, one knife (or a pair of scissors) and some tape to build three juggling clubs.
Tom make a core, just roll a newspaper up tightly, from the fold in the centre to the edge of the paper. Tape this down in a few spots, so the core doesn't un-roll itself.
You will need three cores (one per club) in total.
Slit one newspaper along the centre fold. If it's stapled, remove the staple(s).
The reason for cutting through the fold is to make it easier to roll the bundle up. If the fold is in place, you will end up with crinkles and it may not roll up straight.
Stick a few short lengths of tape to the underside of the newspaper. Use these to make sure that the outer part is tight against the core. Then roll it up and tape it down.
You will need to repeat this for the remaining two cores.
With any luck, you will now have three juggling clubs that are, well, a bit difficult to juggle.
If you find that they're uncontrollable, it may be worth folding the outer cover in half (along the "long" axis), then cut the fold.
We have a be nice policy.
