A rubber band ball is a bouncy ball made by tying rubber bands into a knot and then wrapping or twisting more rubber bands around it until the desired size is achieved. Some people speed the process by starting with a core of wadded paper or a rubber ball (such as a superball). However, some people consider this cheating.
The world's largest rubber band ball was created by Steve Milton, current World Record Holder, and has a diameter of over six feet. The 4,600+ lb ball is estimated to contain over 175,000 rubber bands. It set the world record on November 21, 2006 in Chicago, IL. The first record-winning ball was made by John Bain.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We have cheated here by starting with an aluminium foil centre. We are not creating this for bouncing purposes, but more for a little device to keep and store rubber bands. Cannot wait to collect enough bands to cover the foil.
