Posted:Go to Tesco - buy the juggling balls available there, 3 for 3. Buy two lots. Then buy some random long-socks from... somwhere, and insert the balls into the socks! Simple. smile

Hope that helps.

Posted:i would suggest a diferent way cos ive found juggling balls are very hard to come by when you look for them, but a load of dry lentils, colour doesnt matter, then get some long knee length socks

Turn the socks inside out and pour lentils in to desired weight. Tie SINGLE knot right at the base sealing the lentils in.

then turn the sock outside in so it is the right way and there you go, instant sock poi smile
