Juggling mystifies kids and is a core skill everyone should learn. Apart from improving hand-eye co-ordination, it develops focus and literally helps your brain learn to juggle multiple tasks. It’s a great way to spend time with the kids as well and best of all, it’s practically free.
To get started with your juggling, all you need is a few soft balls or beanbags. If you’ve never learned to juggle, the most important thing in a “practice” juggling ball is that it can’t roll away. You don’t want to spend all your juggling time searching under the couch or chasing balls down the driveway. If you don’t have a soft ball or beanbag, no problem. You can make your own juggling balls. Here’s a quick and easy way.
You will need: few balloons, rice, a small plastic bottle (a soft drink bottle will do), and a funnel
Tip:If you don’t have rice available, you can also use flour or sand.
This is just one of many ways to make juggling balls, but it is one that doesn’t involve sewing.
