Paper Plate Ball Toss!

This easy kid’s activity is a lot of fun. We used two paper plates to make a Velcro ball toss game.    Color them however you like and have fun playing catch.  It’s a fun way to get some exercise and make a quick craft at the same time.    Check out our other  easy games and projects too at


What you'll need:

·        2 Paper plates

·        Paints, markers, or crayons to decorate

·        Stapler

·        Scissors

·        Velcro

·        Duct tape

·        Whiffle ball or other lightweight balls

How to make it:

1.     Decorate the front of each plate.

2.     Staple two strips of Velcro (The rough catchy side to the plates in an X.

3.     Take a strip of duct tape about 7” long and fold it in half to create a strip. 

4.     Flip each plate over and create a handle on the backside of each plate attaching it with a stapler.

To make the ball: attach the Velcro(fuzzy soft side) to one end of a straw to create a “needle” and thread your Velcro through the holes of the whiffle ball taping them to the ball with duct tape.  If you are using a plain plastic ball, take strips of the Velcro and attach it with duct tape.
