We had a large plastic bag full of rubber bands sitting around for a long time and I got the idea in my head that I wanted to make a rubber band ball with them. What I didn't plan on was it turning into a busy bag for my daughter! She absolutely loves this thing!
I got instructions from here on how to start the rubber band ball. They instruct you to start with a waded up piece of tin foil or small ball or a bunch of rubber bands. I opted for the bunch of rubber bands. I just kind of rolled a whole bunch up in my hand and started to wrap rubber bands around them until it began to form a ball shape from there it was easy to keep going. I even had my husband help out and we finished it while watching a movie!
My daughter likes to pull the rubber bands off and try to put them back on. She also likes to throw it or try to bounce it. Its also fun for me to play with her!
This could also be a great thing to throw in your purse for a distraction when your out, I haven't done this yet, but should!
Its cheap and easy and fun to put together, I hope you give it a try!
Let me know what you think!
