You will need:



A clean, dry, plastic water bottle

A piece of paper

Some tape


How to make it:

  • Roll the paper into a cone shape, and tape it in place to make a funnel.

  • Place the funnel in the plastic bottle and pour the rice in until you have a fist-size amount in the bottom. Remove the funnel.

  • Blow up a balloon and stretch its neck across the top of the bottle.

  • Turn the bottle upside-down to pour the rice into the inflated balloon.

  • Carefully take the balloon off the bottle, releasing the air – it will shrink into the shape of a ball.

  • Using scissors, cut off the neck of the balloon, so that you can see a small circle of rice inside. This is a task for an adult.

  • Cut the neck off another balloon, and stretch it over the rice ball to cover the opening – like a swimming hat. You can use decorative balloons for funky-looking juggling balls, or even cut holes in a second or third balloon cover to stretch across and make a cool polka dot pattern.
