Tennis Ball Money Pouches

We needed a cheap money box craft for a lot of children but they were all soooo expensive! In the end came up with this great craft of using tennis balls with a slit cut in for putting money in and then decorating. As it looked like a mouth most choose to make people and eyes were an option in collage materials. (This is a small selection from the 130 that were decorated, by various ages and abilities a very very successful craft!!)

The collage materials to support were:

  • Googly eyes
  • Wool 
  • Feathers 
  • Small pom poms
  • Pipe cleaners (small lengths)
  • Glitter glue
When cutting do with sharp knife away from children and over a sink/ container all our balls had like a paraffin oil type substance inside that stank (we did cut a week or so in advance and washed out balls with hot water to reduce smell)
