So today I will be talking about 5 unusual things to do with a ping pong ball. These plastic balls come very cheap and can be used for the most weirdest of uses. :P Not weird but still :P

Step 1: The Obvious Game of Table Tennis

Well this was obvious but I had to include this in the list. :P

Step 2: The Ping Pong Push

To play this game, you need a pool and one ping pong ball per person. The goal of the game is to push your ball all the way across the pool without touching it with your body. You can splash, blow, swim, or kick to float your ball to the other side of the pool. Stupid, yet fun. :P

Step 3: Ping Pong Bingo

Another game that works well with ping pong balls is Bingo. Make your own Bingo set by writing one letter and number on each ball, and by writing out Bingo cards with the numbers in different boxes. Give each person a card and put all the balls in a large container. Take turns picking out one ball at a time and marking them on your card, until someone gets Bingo.

Step 4: Ping Pong Ball Art

If you're feeling creative you can use your ping pong balls to make a work of art. Being small, the ball can be used to decorate different objects. :P

Step 5: Science

You can use your extra ping pong balls to do science experiments or demonstrate basic scientific principles, such as the Bernouli's principle.

They can also be used to depict atoms in science projects.

    Supersonic ping pong cannon! :D

    Cats love ping pong balls, especially on hardwood/laminate floors.

    For the daring: Light it on fire and play tennis with it. Then light it on fire while doing the other three (pool thing excluded)

    go away now, no smoke bombs or nitrocelulose based ideas here!!!! :))

    Why is it that it's always a Beetle when someone wants to put beer-caps, grass, 1001 lightbulbs or even ping-pong balls on a car ? ;)

    Use ping pong balls to hallucinate! cut a white pong ball in halves, tape over eyes, play radio static, and look up at a light! Let they visions begin!

    Ping pong balls, because they are made of nitrocellulose, make unusually good fire starters.
