How To Make: Juggling Balls

Difficulty: Suitable for all levels

Safety Warning: Younger viewers should get a grown-up to help, as this one involves some simple sewing.

Don’t have your own juggling balls at home? No problem! Alice shows you how to make your own from things you can easily find around the house.

It’s true that the pros can juggle with just about anything, but if you’re learning the basics we suggest using juggling balls. You can make your own with a pair of socks (ask before repurposing the laundry) and any kind of weighty filling like dry rice or lentils.

Alice takes you through how to create neat juggling balls that won’t unravel, with simple stitches to keep everything in place.

Once you’ve made them, start with Beginners’ Juggling to learn some tricks!
