Rubber band balls are an affordable way to keep the kids busy for hours and It's also a great way pass some time in the office for my wife and her co-workers (they have an easy job in my cleaning company).

All you'll need to make them is a lot of rubber bands and a little bit of time and patience.

You can literally make them as big or as small as you like and the best thing is you can keep adding to the size over time.

According to guiness world records, a man by the name of Joe Waul had made one that weighted a whopping 4097kg using 700,000 rubber bands back in 2008. Think you can beat it?

Things You'll Need -

1) A lot of rubber bands (we get 1000 for $8 from the reject shop)

2) Time and patience

Optional -

1) Goggles (to protect your eyes from stray rubber bands, you only need it if you are going to build big ones larger than the size of a basketball)

 

Here's How You Do It - 

1) Start by gathering a large handful of rubber bands

2) Scrunch the rubber bands up into a ball as best as you can

3) Take another rubber band and tie a knot around the rubber band ball to hold it together

4) Start adding more rubber bands to the bundle (you'll need to do 5 or 6 wraps per rubber band at first to make sure it holds in place but less will be needed as it gets larger)

5) Keep adding more and you'll find it will slowly start to resemble a ball

 

That's all there is to it, easy right?

This is great fun for the whole family and is sure to keep adults and children entertained for hours on end!
