Materials needed:

All you essentially need is a bag of rubber bands.  You can usually find them at a dollar store or an office supply store.  One large bag will create dozens of rubber band balls.

How to make rubber band balls:

Begin by folding one of the thicker bands over itself a few times to create the centre of the ball.

Next wrap a rubber band around the centre band a few times.

Continue to wrap rubber bands around each other until the ball reaches the size that you are looking for.

For a larger ball, start by crumpling a piece of paper into a tight ball.  

Wrap rubber bands around the ball until it reaches the size that you want.  
We found that balls that started with a rubber band as the centre were bouncier than balls that had a ball of paper at the centre.  Our boys enjoyed seeing who could make the bigger, bouncier ball!
Your kids will love making these rubber band balls too!!
