DIY POKEMON BALLS TO CREATE YOUR OWN POKEMON GO GAME
This summer will be known as the summer of Pokemon Go. Have your kids been begging you to play? Mine have, only we can’t really play because their parents still don’t have anything higher than a iPhone 4. And for some reason still unknown to me my location services on my phone has not worked for awhile now. We do have an Ipad but no internet connection outside our house. They can not play the actual Pokemon Go game properly. What is a mama to do? It may not be as fun or maybe it is but it is creative. We created our own Pokemon balls left over from balls when had purchased for a ball pit when the boys were toddlers. The kids found Pokemon figures from their stash of toys.
I went scrounging around and pulled out all the red balls we could find. I like to reuse items I have on hand already. If you remember or if you are new I also created Minions from pudding cups/jello cups and created some early literacy activities as well. No literacy activities yet with this one just plain old fun.
What you will need:
PAINT HALF OF THE BALL WITH THE WHITE OR RED ACRYLIC PAINT
PAINT THE WHITE BUTTON ON AND THE BLACK LINE AROUND
I did also add a layer of Mod Podge Matte Finish to seal the paint but not entirely sure how they will hold up to the active play of the kids. We will find out.
I know I’m holding the ball the wrong way as Mr. Yoda informed me. Sorry! Red should be on top.
Check out the Youtube video of them on their own Pokemon Go Hunt in our house and how we made these easy DIY Pokemon Balls.
