Homemade juggling balls

After spending a lot of time this week working and being busy, I decided that a bit of TJ time was in order to cheer me up. 
So we decided to make homemade juggling balls.
So preparation was the key today.
  • 4 Balloons 
  • 1 Bottle split in two 
  • Flour ( for filling balloons)
You will need

Challenging TJ to blow it up

Swapping air for flour 

One happy boy and a few added balloons
When TJ finished making the juggling balls all 3 of them, he took them to school to show his friends and apparently everyone wants one.

Theyre so easy to make, but when the flour and air mix up it can make an awful mess. We choose to do the loading outside (better safe then sorry).


  1. That is sooo awesome my 5 year old is going to love making these :)

    1. They are so easy to make and fun also for both of us to do. I had a hard time not laughing when the flour flew up into Tj's face during the transfer that went wrong!

  2. Such a good idea! I don't think I have the patience to handle the mess but it certainly looks like a lot of fun

    1. If you have the space I would suggest doing it outside as I found mixing the flour and air into the balloon caused an explosion of flour everywhere the first few tries till we got used to it.

  3. Wow, I never knew you could make juggling balls. So cool.... I think I will have to wait a few years though, as I can imagine S using them as canon balls.. oh the joys!

    1. Be sure to use a 9 balloons for the safety wrapping. I found with just 5 they came undone a little to quick. On the last layer maybe put a small bit of superglue around the opening to hold it together.
