DIY magic 8 ball

this DIY take on the classic Magic 8 Balls was a fun, quick and easy project to do with the kidlings. the idea was from family fun magazine . sometimes this magazine can be a little corny but i have found quite a few fun ideas that can be done with stuff laying around the house. anyhow, after our "magic 8 balls" were finished i heard some very interesting questions..."will i  kiss a girl other than my mom or sister on the lips?" the answer was yes followed by a bunch of gross out noises (me thinks thy doth protest too much!)
i also heard  "will I get blown away by a tornadoe?"  to which for sure was the answer... yikes!
the sound of pure elation was a bit funny when"will i ever have $1000.00?" was answered by yes...i guess it is all relative...
was this a great project? signs say yes!


  1. What a great idea! I love the questions that your kids came up with ... hmmm... I wonder what my kiddos would ask about?!

  2. Yes...try it! Maybe A's would be something about soccer...or the mean boy!

  3. this is such a fun idea! and this is such a cute post, amy!
    made me laugh out loud!

  4. these darn magic eight balls are still a hit with the kids, 5 days later!
