An easy way to divide a 3" Foam Ball into 4 equal segments (quarters).

You will need...

  • The easy-to-use Printable Ball Marking Strips found below
  • Paper scissors
  • Pen/Pencil/Butterknife/Tucking Tool/Tracing Wheel (any one of these)
  • A couple of pins
  • Flexible tape measure

You can find our Soft Foam Balls, right HERE.

(We also have them pre-marked into quarters, right HERE - please check back)


  1. Print out the template at 100% (do not re-size or use the 'Shrink to Fit' option on your printer).
  2. Cut out one of the templates.
  3. Pin to the mold line around your Foam Ball.
  4. Use the lines on the template to draw guidelines around the ball (see the video above for instructions).

    Thanks for the template, but I received the premarked balls from you. Do you have a pattern I could use to cut material for each of the four sections? Thank you Terry
