I'm thinking either I shouldn't bother to learn since it's obviously so passé, (unless I can quickly progress to juggling fire and live chain saws, which may turn a head or two) or I'd better damn well learn otherwise I'll be the only one in town who can't keep her balls in the air. Or, um, something along those lines. Anyway, it's on my list, and I've already made juggling balls, so I might as well just get on with it.
Here's a simple recipe for juggling balls that don't bounce and have good grip:
- Wrap a few handfuls of dry rice in cellophane (make the ball of rice smaller or larger depending on your hand size)
- Cut the spout off a regular (12") balloon and stuff the rice ball into the balloon
- Cut the spout off another balloon and wrap the first one with it
Now make a couple more and you've got yourself a nice homemade set to learn with. Or just to throw at the neighbour's cat if juggling really isn't your thing.
