Instructions

Collect and organize all your supplies! Use the pencil to trace three circles of the same size on a piece of cardboard, and cut them out. Circle 1: On one piece cut four slits about 1/3 the length of the diameter that are of equal size and length. They should also be as evenly spaced as possible. Circle 2 & 3: On the other two pieces cut a slit half the diameter of the circle, and cut out a -T shape. Take Circle 1 and fold it in half, which will reveal one slot in the middle. Take the folded Circle 1 and slide it into the T slot of Circle 2. Once the two circles are joined, unfold the flaps of the Circle 1 and fold them up. Now insert Circle 3 slot into Circle 3 slot. Raise flaps of Circle 1 to give the toy a 3D ball shape. Submit completed projects to PH: 361 S. Raymond Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105.
