This is no ordinary football, it has a tail and howls in the wind as you throw it. Think of this as a craft you can make instead of buying one whole, with things you can find around the house!
This is a great way to Transform that Old football into a NEW and Exciting Howler!

Step 1: Supplies and Tools
- Foam Football
- Foam (bottom tips and base)
- Glue ( or anything else sticky to hold it together)
- Anything costum
Step 2: Form Base
Form the base so the football stays in but not all the way out. Essentially you will be making a cylinder with the paper for the base. Then glue the football onto the base, if needed secure the base cylinder with tape
Step 3: Cut Tail Slots and Fins
- Cut slots into the base to insert tail fins
- Cut triangles to fit into slots to act as fins and glue
- Insert fins.
- Let Dry
Step 4: Summary
At first I was skeptical on the whole idea and considered passing it up and brainstorming some more. But, I looked around and found all the supplies and was able to buy them together.. It turned out way better than I expected and is a lot of fun to use outside. The biggest challenge was trying to get the wings to stay in place while the glue dried.
