“Ball with Streamers,” Friend, Mar. 1999, 16
To make the ball, you will need: scissors; an old, thick sock with a ribbed top; and several ribbons in different widths, lengths, and colors.
Cut off the ribbed top of the sock just below the heel.
Cut the top into smaller pieces and stuff them into the toe of the sock.
Tie pieces of ribbon just above the stuffing (see illustration).
Throw your ball in the air and watch the ribbon streamers flutter.
