Step 5: Complete

Your Makedo Giant Windball is complete! Have a ‘ball’ of your own and take it outside for a spin! Make one of any size or colour to decorate your home using cardboard scraps and a Freeplay KIT for THREE. Download easy instructions from the Makedo blog...
Don’t forget to post your Windball adventures on Makedo's Facebook page.
<p>I finally had the chance to make it now that my daughter is old enough (4yrs). Her and her cousins (some older some younger) had a blast with it. After cutting out all the cardboard squares, we had all the kids &amp; adults draw/paint/create artwork on them, and once assembled, it kept the kids busy outside for hours and hours!</p>
I can't believe nobody has mentioned the word &quot;rhombicosidodecahedron&quot; yet.<br> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhombicosidodecahedron" rel="nofollow">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhombicosidodecahedron</a><br> <br> I mean if you keep calling this thing a &quot;Giant Windball&quot;, how's anyone going to know what you're talking about?<br> ;-)
Haha you are so right! Bring on the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
hhmmmm coraplast from old signs instead of cardboard would make this more weather resistant... very interesting idea
This really appeals to me. So inspiring! You could have a party with 30 guests and have them all decorate a piece of cardboard. <br>OR You could take 30 LP album covers (!) and use the fronts of them. Or 15 and cut them up! Maybe someone has already done this?? <br> <br>

That is a great idea! I really like to see such creative things! :)
I love it.<br>My weekend is now planned. Thank you.
Would love to see a photo of your Windball when you complete it! :D
Here it is. I had to invent my own cleats to hold it together. They didn't work very well so duct tape to the rescue again. I think the makedo gear would be much much much easier and neater.
LOOKS GREAT! :D thanks for sharing!
This looks like tons of fun! How many clips would this take?
This project would take around 60 makedo pins and clips. :) Makes building it a lot easier and simpler.
Perfect for a beach!
Very nice, thanks for sharing.
It's an industrialized tumbleweed!<br> <br> Looks like a lot of fun too.&nbsp; LOVE!
Thanks! It's loads of fun! :D
