DIY Inflatable Beach Balls
I used the beach balls as give aways for my child's last day of 4th grade. I printed stickers with the school's mascot and the school year on them, and stuck them to the balls. All the kids got a ball and everyone had a sharpie to sign everyone else's ball. The kids loved it, and unlike most t-shirts you sign, it was one size fits all.

Good party craft
I bought these for my 10year old luau party, They were a big hit! A little smaller than a traditional beach ball, but the kids loved them. I used a "sharpie" marker for the kids to decorate and they worked great!

They aren't round!
Got these for an autograph party for my daughters last elementary school party. They would have been great, if they were actually round. I buy a ton of stuff from oriental trading, and this won't stop me in the future, but this particular purchase wasn't the best.

they were o.k.
These balls were o.k. a hit with some, a miss with others.

Kids enjoyed this project. A few balls were not inflatable, and some had shrunk over time.

Permanent markers smear
Good luck keeping markers from smearing on this product. The balls are a bit lopsided and permanent markers feel sticky, even after letting them dry a while. I wound up having to clean up smudges with hand sanitizer, which worked well, and tried to set the ink with baking soda. This kept the balls from smudging further, although I'm not sure what happened when the balls were played with in water. I used Sharpie markers, as well as OT permanent markers and had the same results.

YAY!!! Beach Balls

Loved the idea and was a great thing for the kids. The only complaint I have is that 3 of the 12 balls had holes in them. I was upset, but overall was a success for the kids.

A Fun Purchase
These beach balls were a lot of fun, and they worked really nicely with permanent markers. I had them available for kids (and adults) to play with at a party held on the beach- and everyone seemed to enjoy them, though it was hard for the kids to get a good grip while they were drawing.
