Ball Juggling Playlist

   Fundamental Throws, Catches, and Patterns used in every skill at camp and every sport in general.  A fun starting place that progresses quickly.

   Juggling is as old as the hieroglyphics in the Pyramids and can help cross train any sport with drills.

  • 3 Balloons filled with lentils and extra cut balloon layers stretched over.
  • 3 Tennis balls with 7 pennies inserted in each. Stretch balloons over exterior.
  • 3 Lacrosse balls for beginner bounce tricks far away from anything breakable.
Rola Bola Playlist

The best introductory toy for learning balance and a surfing style of tricks. Use extreme care and always practice with tables for support and safety.

The gateway prop for all other balancing skills: unicycle, tightrope, stilts, and walking globe.

  • 2-Liter Plastic Bottle -OR- 4″ Diameter PVC Pipe
  • Wood plank -OR- Skateboard deck
  • Duct tape

[see video (1) for instructions]

Trick Sticks Playlist

Originating in the Chinese circus, a fast moving center stick is manipulated with two hand sticks.  The prop that started Nonsense’s passion for performance at a young age.

  • Dowels (2 sizes)
  • Electrical tape
  • Bike tubing
  • Staples

Wrap the thicker center dowel diagonally with bike tube rubber.  Keep tight and overlap and staple both ends well.   Attach extra bunches of rubber on the ends for weight and balance.  Mark the center balance point with colorful tape.

Contact Juggling Playlist

A form of juggling that uses seemingly impossible balance to roll an object around the entire body.  Often thought to be a magic trick.

This is a more advanced discipline, but completely learnable.  Practice and a positive attitude are the key to mastery.

Baton Twirling Playlist

   Nobody teaches the art better than the 3-time world champion, Annetta Lucero.  Another Hawaii artist in our ohana who has generously donated these unreleased videos from her private archive.
   The moves in these videos progress to a very high level, but are explained incredibly well. Annetta’s DVD series (link below) is the cheapest and best way to get all basic instruction and fun.

  • Dowel
  • 2x Rubber Knobs (for chair legs)
  • Tape & Grip Tape

   Weight ends of dowel with knobs.  Use grip tape in center of dowel and mark center point.

No Knot-Sense Craft Playlist

Basic knots and techniques for creating decorative knot projects and accessories with Fin Pendants and beads.

The hours of entertainment and creative potential are what keep this craft fun at any age.

  • Hemp Cord (size#20)
  • Clasp
  • Beads
Pipe Mastering Craft Playlist

The most reusable of any art medium, pipe cleaners are also one of the most affordable.  Mastering basic concepts quickly allows campers to make their own action figures, palm trees, and ocean creatures.

Request any superhero and Nonsense will probably show you how to create it.

  • 20+ Pipe Cleaners
  • Tapered Chopstick
  • 3/16″ Small Wood Dowel
  • Nail Clippers
Mini Board Craft Playlist

   Instructions on how to shape, detail and laminate your own foam mini board.  2 rough blanks are included in the Art Response Kit, but any cleaned styrofoam can be repurposed in a pinch. 

DO NOT SAND FOAM WITHOUT COLLECTING DUST IN WATER.

Maybe just watch the videos. 😉

  • Slim piece of styrofoam
  • Popsicle sticks for sanding
  • Sandpaper
  • Water dish
  • Gloves
