Are you looking for a quick summer boredom buster for the kids? Today I am going to show you how to make these super easy Rubber Band Balls. I remember creating these as a kid and having a ton of fun!
All you need is a bag of rubber bands. You can usually find them at a dollar store or an office supply store. One large bag will create dozens of rubber band balls.
Begin by folding one of the thicker bands over itself a few times to create the centre of the ball.
Next wrap a rubber band around the centre band a few times.
Continue to wrap rubber bands around each other until the ball reaches the size that you are looking for.
For a larger ball, start by crumpling a piece of paper into a tight ball.
Wrap rubber bands around the ball until it reaches the size that you want.
We found that balls that started with a rubber band as the centre were bouncier than balls that had a ball of paper at the centre.
Our boys enjoyed seeing who could make the bigger, bouncier ball!
Your kids will love making these!!
