Don’t really know why I decided to start making my ball but my son and I started to see lots of red Royal Mail elastic bands everywhere. Me being the resourceful person that I am and hating to see things go to waste began to collect them. The obvious use for them was to make an elastic band ball. Although we haven’t been collecting for very long and our ball is only the size of a tennis ball, I’m completely hooked and I have all my family on the look-out for them too (I think they think I’m nuts!). We are going to continue doing our thing, it is strangely satisfying!!
Well we found 19 today and we are very proud of that!
