Brown rice juggling balls
I was marching around town last week looking for somewhere that sold juggling balls, and not having any luck. They're not quite toys and not quite sports equipment, I suppose. One games place said they usually only stock them at Christmas time. Suddenly it occurred to me that there might be an easy way to make them. I thought I remembered a type made from balloons. Sure enough, there is an easy way. The trickiest thing was trying to make them as small as possible (I only had standard-sized balloons) so they wouldn't be too big for a 4 year old's hands. The first few I made were a bit too big, so now we have a set on the coffee table. Every now and then I throw them around, but I still can't juggle.
