This is the homemade version of a toy you can buy at a toy store or through a catalog. Crafting Time: 15 - 30 minutes
To play, slide the ring over your right foot and up around your ankle. Swing your right foot to rotate the ring and get the ball moving around your leg in a big circle. As the ball moves around, you must jump over the string with your left foot each time.

I've tried to explain that toy to people many times. I've never been able to find the name of it! I didn't even know it was still available.
Great idea for making your own.

Wow! There used to be a version of this when i was young...it was called the LemonTwist. The ball was yellow and in the shape of a lemon. My girls are going to think this is an easy craft to make for summer fun. THANKS!! :)
