    Favorite Things To Juggle

    I love to entertain my kiddies. They are all fascinated with juggling, and I find this delightful. My preschoolers like to watch me juggle soft pinecones and ping pong balls. My granddaughter, at 8 or 9 months old, cracked up when I juggled lego duplos and rock-a-stack rings...

    Back At the 3 Ball Cascade

    I taught myself to juggle over 2 decades ago, before the YouTube era.  I recently came across a bunch of really good YouTube juggling tutorials, and I'm working on perfecting my juggling form for the 3 ball cascade and 2 balls with one hand. It seems like one of those...

    oh, the day I found myself the greatest

    experience thing that will ever happen to me. I was in the sixth grade, and there was a kid that always had a long double-ended pen that he would do neat tricks with. It's like when you are in a classroom, and somebody twirling their utensil, but it's ten times better. I decided...

    Life Benefits From Juggling

    Juggling was a big part of my job for nearly 30 years, and I am so thankful that it was, because it has continued to make a big difference to so many aspects of my life. Machetes, firesticks, clubs, fruit and vegetables, eggs, ice-blocks, cakes, crockery...

    I've been juggling for two years.

    I can do quite a few three ball tricks now, and can manage a cascade with clubs and rings. I can juggle four balls for ten seconds or so as well. As well as being really fun, it makes you sound interesting when people ask about your hobbies!

    My Limit Is 3

    My husband taught me to juggle when we were first dating.  I can juggle three balls decently and when we practice my husband and I can juggle back and forth a bit.  I am by no means a good juggler, but it's fun . . . now I want to find something to juggle!

    Actually

    Technically I can only juggle one handed. I get muddled up trying to do two hands. 3 balls with one hand is easy, with two, I just can get it right.I know I know I am weird.

    Hello, everyone! I firstly tried to 'juggle'

    Up to 3 Balls

    I started with two, which was fairly easy, and then graduated to 3 within a couple of days after reading a tutorial book. Very soon I was able to do tricks such as Under the Leg, Backwards Juggling and the Catch..... it's indeed a fun skill to have on hand! Although I have...

    Sure can. I can do it with my eyes closed too. And at that point someone usually trips me up or something. Just because I'm not looking...I can probably go up to about five balls at a time.
