What do DIY Juggling Balls have to do with Chick-fil-A and you?
Chick-fil-A has partnered with the Barnum and Bailey Circus to promote their new Legends tour and they may be stopping in your town soon. I had the chance to meet two very sweet clowns at Chick-fil-A in Lima, PA, and they certainly knew how to warm our spirits on such a bitter cold day!
The Chick-fil-A, in Lima, set the scene by decorating the entire restaurant. There was a red and white canopy, lots of colorful balloons, crafts, contests, and red clown noses for everyone! The cow, outside of the restaurant, was even dressed up with a clown wig, red nose and sunglasses.
There was so much excitement in the air! While the kids waited for the arrival of the clowns, they kept busy by eating chicken and doing crafts, including these really cool DIY juggling balls.
If you want to make your own Juggling Balls, here's what you need:
- Plastic Baggies
- Uncooked Rice
1) Fill up a baggie with about 1/3 cup of rice.
2) Use Scissors to cut off the ends of the balloons (as shown above.)
3) Smoosh up your baggie (filled with rice) into one balloon.
4) Then, take that balloon and squeeze it into a second balloon.
Those are the simple steps for making juggling balls at home!
Here's a video of the clowns performance at Chick-fil-A. Keep an eye out! Maybe they'll be coming to your town soon.

Thank you to Chick-fil-A in Lima, PA for giving all the local moms somewhere to take their kiddos on a chilly Thursday afternoon. My son and I loved it and are looking forward to future events!
