Ping-Pong Pinball

Materials

  • Utility knife
  • Shallow box (from a 24-pack of soda)
  • Ping-Pong ball

Directions

  1. Use a utility knife to cut three or four holes slightly larger than a Ping-Pong ball in a random pattern across the bottom of a shallow box.
  2. Have your child place a Ping-Pong ball at one end of the box, then hold the box and maneuver it so the ball reaches the other end without falling through a hole.
  3. For more challenge, cut more holes in the box or play with more than one ball at a time.
