Stack of BB's

Materials Tools
1 1/2" Leather circle
26 BBs
PCV Ring
Hot Glue

Here is a fun one. You need 26 BBs, a background, and white glue for this project. You can either buy a tube of BBs or get some spilt ones from Webelos camps. Take a leather or foam background and glue the first layer to the background and allow it to dry. Then glue on the second layer and let it dry. Finally glue on the last BB. The layers should fit together very easily. This is a natural alignment for the BBs, that is the BBs on an upper layer fit into dimples of the lower layer. The drawing below illustrates the arrangement. The stars in the 1st and 2nd layers indicate where the BBs on the next layer are to be placed.
