If you have pets, dogs and cats love wool dryer balls! They make excellent indoor pet balls because they are softer on furniture than regular toy balls and are also less loud when bouncing. But they also make great outdoor balls - definitely more eco-friendly than almost any other pet ball.
They're great for toddlers and kids. Used as an indoor/outdoor toy ball to practice baseball, to learn to juggle, or for indoor snowball fights.
For a baby, place them in a bucket, cover it, and let the baby drum away.
For crafting, they can be covered in fabric - they are the perfect base for handmade dolls. They are fun to finger paint as a kids' activity. You can make planets out of them to hang.
If painted they can be used to decorate a vase or a bowl. Then with a few drops of essential oils, they make perfect air fresheners!
As therapy balls: put one dryer ball between the back of a recliner and the sore spot on your spine and minutely move it around to ease the pain.
Repurpose them as air fresheners or as fabric fresheners in your drawers. Just put on each dryer ball a few drops of your favorite essential oil and put them in your drawers. Put a string on them - very easy to do with a large needle - and hang them to a clothes hanger to freshen your clothes in the closet.
