Playing circus is a lot of fun for kids. Did you know that you can help the kids make their own juggling balls? It’s fun, easy and no sewing is required! These juggling balls will lead to hours of fun learning to juggle.

DIY juggling balls

What you’ll need:

  • rice
  • small freezer bags
  • balloons
  • measuring cup


  1. Measure half a cup of uncooked rice (you can vary the amount depending on the size of the ball you require).
  2. Tip the rice into a small freezer bag and expel the air and twist it shut.
  3. Cut the neck off a balloon and place your bag of rice inside the cut balloon.
  4. Cut neck off a second balloon and place balloon covered rice in, hole side first.
  5. Repeat steps 1 – 4 to make more juggling balls.
  6. You are ready to juggle.

My kids love playing circus and we have a large number of juggling balls as they love making them.

  • How simple and creative is this!
    Thank you!


  • This is great, hope to make them too


  • What a great idea. My kids love juggling and it’s usually with mandarins or apples so at least with these they’ll leave the fruit for eating.


  • At whgat agew would the children manage to juggle them sucessfully without being so frustrated the just give up?


  • I should have started to follow this lovely comm when my daughter was younger. It’s always full of wonderful ideas! :-)


  • What a great idea. I know how hard it is to find juggling balls in the stores as I tried a couple of years ago and then gave up. This is so easy to do.


  • What a fantastic idea. Thank you


  • Wow I haven’t seen these since I was a kid! Great to see ideas like this breathing life back into this world.
