Supplies: 
  • 1 cereal box
  • 1 lid (from a container of moist wipes)
  • Net (from a box of fruit)
  • Orange tissue paper
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Black felt tip pen
  • Tape or all-purpose glue
Instructions: 
  1. Paint the cereal box any color you wish. Try turning the box inside out for an easier way to paint (optional). Let dry.
  2. Next, take the lid of a wipes container and open it up. The top piece will become the backboard of the basketball net.
  3. Use the black felt tip pen to outline the backboard.
  4. Hang the fruit net down from the 'loop' part of the wipes container - this makes the basketball net. Use tape to secure the fruit net on the lid.
  5. Using tape or all-purpose glue, attach the backboard to the cereal box.
  6. Scrunch up orange tissue paper to make little balls.
  7. Decorate the cereal box with anything you would like, such as sequence, stickers, markers, etc…(optional).
  8. Now, you are ready to play the game - place your basketball game onto a table. Sitting a little away from it, try to throw as many balls as you can through the basketball net.
  9. You can also decorate and use ping pong balls as the basketball (optional).
