Here’s what authors Ethan Zohn and David Rosenberg have to say about this activity:

“This is like building a string ball or a tin foil ball. Start with the golf ball or rock at the center. Wrap it with a layer of rags. Tie it by winding the string around and around in all different directions. Tie the two ends of the string together with a knot. Wrap your ball with a layer of bags. Tie it in the same way.”
