Rubber Band Ball

Age Range: 5 - 7

Many teachers stuggle to get their students quiet in the hallway.

I started a rubber-band ball and anytime we get a compliment from an adult in the hallway we get to add a rubberband to the rubberband ball.

They LOVE it and it is very inexpensive. I now have the quietest classroom in the hallway.


Here are some tips from Barb Shelby about making a rubber band ball:

All you need to make these easy rubber balls is aluminum foil and a large amount of rubber bands. Rubberbands that are colourful and varied in size are better...

HOME MADE RUBBER BAND BALL

  • Give each child a sheet of aluminum foil; have them crumple it into a ball.
  • Take 1 rubber band at a time and twist it around the foil many times to cover the aluminum foil; the more rubber bands the bigger the ball.
  • Continue until the ball is the desired size and no more rubber bands will fit on the ball.
  • When the ball is complete, children will have a high bouncing ball!
