Introduction: LED Ping Pong Ball

You can roll them, play catch with them, or even play fetch with your dog with them.(Larger dogs may choke, my dog is really small and cannot choke on it)

NEWER VERSION: (https://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Ping-Pong-Ball-Improved/)

Step 1: Gather Materials

You need:
Super bright LEDs
Two Ping Pong Balls
CR2032 3V Coin Batteries


ONLY SUPER BRIGHT LEDS WORK!!!!!

Step 2: Gather Tools

You need:
Tape
Hot Glue Gun
Scissors

Step 3: Put Together LEDs

Put Together LED Throwies. It's the same concept as putting together a throwie, except you need no magnet.

Heres the instructable for throwies: LED Throwies

Step 4: Cut Ping Pong Balls

Get one ping pong ball and cut hole in top so that you can fit LED Throwie inside.

Then put throwie inside.


Step 5: Glue It Up

Put hot glue in ball so it keeps throwie in place.



You do not have to fill all the ways just fill so that LED does not move around inside.

Step 6: Cut Other Ping Pong Ball

Cut the other ping pong ball in half.

Step 7: Glue Side to Hole

Glue one half of the ping pong ball to top of led ball.

Step 8: Your Finished!!!

Mine did not come out that great because I ran out of super bright LEDs after I was fooling around with my green one. My first was better due to the super brights.

    hehehehehe, Sweeeet

    heres what i did and it can turn off and works with ping pong cut it directly in half so its even then put the LED throwie in it (i put 2 for a cool effect) then just tape on the seam then to turn off take off the tape :)

    This thing work better than I thought it would. The only problem is YOU CANT TURN IT OFF!!! 7/10

    any place that i can get a big bag of super cheap ping pong balls ?

    probly ebay, i got 72 of the ones i used in this instructables on ebay for 15 bucks. They are not real ping pong balls made of cellulose, so u cant make smoke bombs, but they are plastic ones that work well for projects.

    of course -- but are they good for actually playing ping pong? (not your instructable, but the original ball...) although it would be cool to be able to play in the dark...

    theyre al right doesnt beat original tho
