1.  Paint the edges and back of the disc red. Paint four balls blue and four balls green. Set aside to dry.

TIP:  Stick a toothpick into the hole in each ball to hold as a handle while you paint, then stick them into a piece of scrap foam to dry.

2.  To make a pattern for cutting the felt into wedges, trace the 12” disc on to a piece of paper. Cut out the circle and fold it into eighths and cut out one eighth.

3.  Cut four wedges each from the red and yellow felt and glue them to the disc, alternating the colors. Glue a small circle of red felt in the center. Allow to dry.

4.  Cut the Velcro strip into 4-¼” lengths, then cut each piece in half lengthwise. Adhere a narrow strip around the center of each of the painted balls.

5.  Adhere a felt number to each of the wedges.
