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:
- FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Balls (anysize)
- Red Paint
- Blake Tape
- White & Black Cardstock
- Hot Glue
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.
