Equipment Name:Sock Balls
Materials Needed:Old socks (Donated by students), Pillow stuffing, Needles and thread
Rationale:To make balls of different sizes for students to work on throwing and catching activities.
Directions For Making:
At the beginning of the school year the AOS P.E. Department host a ball making party for parents only. The party begins with all parents sewing sox balls for one hour. Our goal is 100 balls. Parents are given a clip board with the following instructions for making the sock ball.
- Stuff one sock with enough stuffing to make a 4 inch round ball.
- Cut off the excess material from the sock.
- Shape the ball as round as possible and fold over a flap of material. Sew the flap closed.
- Select another sock and repeat steps 1 through 4!
