Many children around the world make their own soccer balls. Here are instructions on how you can make one of your own.

1. Take rags and tear in long strips.
2. Start with a knot (or a small rock) and begin wrapping in a ball.
3. Connect rag strips with small, tight knots.
4. When ball is large enough (or you run out of rags) fasten last strand to the wound up rags and tuck knot as far into the woven rags as possible.

Ball Project exists to get real soccer & other balls to community leaders to help children play.
