    Get the permission of the owner of the cones and a soft soil

    Try to throw one cone from your dominant hand to the other, doing this you will be able to see how much space you`ll need and if you have the strength to juggle with the cones

    Try two make two tosses (like you do with clubs) but be very careful about not dropping them, because you can break them very easily. Don`t go to the next step unless you are pretty sure that you can perform this one

    Put one cone in each hand and hold the other beneath your non-dominant armpit. You have to do this because you can`t hold two cones in one hand

    Toss one cone with your dominant hand and grab the cone that is beneath the other arm before the first cone arrives

    Now you have one cone in each hand and the third arriving at your non- dominant hand, so you continue juggling just like you are used to do with three clubs

    To stop just hold two cones, one in each hand and let the third fall down. You can use the cones that are in your hands and/or your legs to avoid the cone from breaking (I`m sure it will if it hits the ground with some speed.)

Tips

  • Grabbing a cone can be very difficult, so try tossing just one many times to be sure that you can catch it in the air
  • Don`t try to hold two cones in one hand to stop juggling, it can be a disaster

Warnings

  • A traffic cone can hurt you really bad if you hit yourself, so you`d better be sure you can really do it before trying
  • You can break the cone very easily if you drop them, so be sure that you have the permission of the owner and a soft soil (see "Things You'll Need")

Things You'll Need

  • Three traffic cones: there are basically two types, the big ones and the small ones. I am pretty sure that anyone can do with the big ones, (if you can, please write it here!) so you will need the small ones
  • A permission of the owner of the cones
  • A soft soil (the cones are easily breakable)
  • Experience with juggling clubs
  • Experience with large and heavy objects (like green coconuts, in fact I recommend you try the green coconuts before the cones)
