Sometimes the games that are the most fun, start with the most limited materials.
For this simple game, you just need plastic cups (or paper cups work too) some scissors and marbles or other small balls, like a bouncy ball.
Cut out opening in various sized from the top of the cup. Turn over for play! You can add numbers if the kids want to keep score, lower numbers for the larger openings and larger numbers for the smaller openings (since they’re more difficult).
Make sure your surface is flat and see how many points you can rack up!
Another great part about this simple game, is that it’s easy to clean up and store! You can even clean and reuse plastic cups from a party.
Cut slots out of a cardboard box (like a shoebox) if you don’t have any plastic or paper cups on hand.
I love the simple things to beat summer “boredom” Thanks!
