Make a Giant Rubber Band Ball


The rubber band ball I made a few years ago. 


Well, I’m not sure if it’s a GIANT rubber band ball, but I think I’ll cross this one off the list for now. I finished off this item a couple years ago and although taking the time to undergo such a pursuit may seem fairly boring or like a waste of time, I can assure you guys it was a lot of fun!

If you’re looking to make your own rubber band ball, I’d suggest buying colored rubber bands, as I found it more interesting working with different colors.

Since I don’t have much else to say about my own experience with this activity, I figured I’d provide you with a video tutorial on how to make a rubber band ball.  In the video, he starts off with only rubber bands, but if you find it easier, I’d also suggest wrapping the rubber bands around a rolled up ball of tin foil.

Also, if you’re interested here’s some statistics and photos of the largest rubber band ball ever thus far.

Finally, here are some fun facts about rubber bands.

So has anyone else ever made a rubber band ball or plans on adding this one to his or her bucket lists? Tell me about your experiences!

    I had one once, but the rubber bands got old and hard and cracked. It kind of fell apart.

    Rubber band ball! Never thought of it. I’ve seen people make them or have them in tv shows, but never though of making one. How long did that take?
