Want to turn this Poke Ball craft into a fun party activity? Start by letting kids create their Poke Balls, and make a few extras yourself if you don’t have a lot of guests.  They can follow the directions above, or get creative and make different colors. While the kids are occupied with something else, gather up their creations and hide them outside (if it’s raining, you can choose a spot indoors to play). Divide the kids into two teams, then challenge them to find the Poke Balls! Make it even more challenging by hiding a few regular golf balls to throw them off!

This Poke Ball craft also makes a great gift idea for a Pokemon Go-obsessed dad who loves to golf! The possibilities are endless! Use your imagination and I bet you can come up with even more fun ways to play with them!
