How to make your very own juggling balls!

FIRST!  Before you start, find all of these things,

If you don't, a mob of maliciously maniacal marching monkeys (say that ten times fast) will track you down and show you how to mambo, so you had better listen to what I say.

Next measure out 1/2 cup rice,

 put the rice aside for a moment and take out the grocery bag,

and cut off the corner,

like so,

now put the rice into the corner of the bag and twist up the top so that rice doesn't fly every where, 

and set it, twisty bit down, and forget about it for a sec. 

Grab your balloons, I would recommend 12 inch because they are the easiest, but a little smaller will also work.  Do not get the ones marked "water balloons" because they are way too small.

take out a balloon and cut off the neck, 

stretch the beheaded balloon over the bag of rice,

(Hmmmm... It appears that I forgot to re-paint my left thumb nail... oopsie.)

Cut off the neck of another balloon, 

A beheaded balloon!  EEEEEEEEKKKK!!!!!

Now stretch the second balloon over the bag of rice,

do the same with a third balloon, 

A newborn juggling ball!

Once you've made your juggling ball you can add as much character as you like!  One interesting thing to do, is to add one more layer and cut holes in it,

In any variation that you like! 

Happy Juggling!
