Pinball Game

diy cardboard pinball game

The kids love playing pinball at the night markets in Taiwan. Since we can’t go back this year I decided to bring the game right to our living room. I made this with a cardboard box, corks, and boba straws. The fun in DIY is making stuff out of whatever you have around the house! Marbles are too heavy and kept knocking the straws off and pompoms are too light. The foam balls we are using are from this popper toy are just right!

This game is a fun way to sneak in some math by turning it into a competitive game and having the kids add up their scores. This is way less complaining his getting him to do his math worksheets.
