Easy DIY Pokémon® Poké Balls


Pokémon® Go is so popular right now, it’s crazy.  I have three boys and they are all obsessed and so is my husband.  My son just turned 4 and he wanted a Pokémon® party so I knew right away that I wanted to use the foam balls and make some pokeballs for the party.

I know this craft has been done before but of course, I had to use FloraCrafts balls to make one for their new site!

Supplies needed to make this project:

I actually used several different sizes for this craft. I made small ones for the kids to hunt in our yard, and I made some larger ones for the party table.  Start by marking the center.  I used a sharpie to add my guideline around the middle of the ball.  I found a cup the same width of the ball and set the ball inside. Then I added my line around the center.

Next, I used a small stick I had from my craft supplies and put it through the bottom. Then I painted the top half of the ball with red acrylic paint.  I let the balls dry for 4 hours because I did add the paint on pretty thick.  I stuck the sticks in a scrap piece of foam while they dried.

After the paint dried, I used some black tape for the middle of my Poké Ball.  It went on really easy.

Finally, it’s time to add the center of the Poké Ball!!  I already had some circle punches on hand from my scrapbooking days.  I did a large black circle and small white circle and hot glued them into place.

I think I did a total of 35 Poké Balls for the party.  I gave the larger ones out as party favors and the smaller ones were used for decorations and a Poké Ball hunt.

The foam balls were of course the perfect thing to use for this craft.  You could have your kids make their Poké Balls themselves, it’s such a super easy craft.
