This is the homemade version of a toy you can buy at a toy store or through a catalog. Crafting Time: 15 - 30 minutes
5 inch plastic lid from a coffee can
18 inch piece of string
small whiffle ball
Cut the center from the plastic lid to make a ring.
Tie one end of your piece of string to the ring.
Wrap the ring with electrical tape. The tape will also cover the knot in the string.
Tie the small whiffle ball to the loose end of the string. Place a dab of glue on the knot to secure.
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.
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!! :)
