How to do it: 1) Pour the rice into the a bottle 2) Inflate the balloon with just a couple of breaths (so its bigger than a juggling ball). and twist the trunk of the balloon, and fit the mouth of the balloon onto the bottle. 3) Let the balloon trunk untwist 4) Tip the bottle to allow rice to pour into the balloon. 5) Take the balloon off the bottle, and let it deflate around the rice inside. 6) Cut off the entire neck of the balloon, leaving a small hole 7) Take a 2nd and 3rd balloon and cut off the trunks 8) Stretch the second balloon over the ball filled balloon covering the small exposed hole, 10) Turn the ball over 11) Repeat with a third balloon and stretch over the ball.
Polka-Dots. A neat trick with Balloon Juggling balls is the fact that you can cut tiny holes in the 3 rd balloon, this will make your Juggling balls look like they are Polka-dotted.
Make Your Own Juggling Balls: Tennis Balls.
Materials: 1. Three-Four Tennis ball. 2. A pair of scissors. 3. Three 12" balloons. 4. One box cutter. 5. Dry seeds of any type: Example: Pinto beans, garbanzo beans, peas, lentils, kidney beans, grams. Small are generally better.
How to do it? 1.)Use the box cutter to make an incision in the tennis ball that is not to big, It should not open up by itself. This is how you will insert the seeds into your tennis balls. 2.)Squeeze the ball to open the hope up, then fill it up with seeds, you can put as many seeds in the ball as you want, it is best to fill the balls about half full. 3.)Cut off the trunk of the balloon (The part that you blow air into), then incase the tennis ball inside the balloon. 4.) Now cover your tennis ball with the remaining balloons 4.) Now cover your tennis ball with the remaining balloons
