That´s right… all that in a single toy.

This one is really easy to make and lots of fun to play with.

You can make one of these in about 10 minutes.

You´ll need:

_6 coloured balloons.



_2 pairs of hands.

How to make:

1. Fill a balloon with a little bit of water, just enough to make it start stretching, and tie a knot.

2. Take the rest of the balloons and cut off most of the narrow bit, “the neck” of the balloon.

3. You need the extra pair of hands for this step. One of you should open and stretch one of the balloons while the other pushes the water filled balloon inside, knot side first.

4. Repeat this step 2 more times.

5. You’ll be hiding the colour of the previous balloon each time you add a new one. If you want your bouncy ball to be colourful, make a few cuts on the sides of the next balloons.

Done!  Lots of bouncing, lots of fun and no water spilling at all!

This was a childhood reminder by Andrea de Uriarte…Thanks for the idea sis!
