|Even an old box gets upcycled in our house|
So the first of the games I made was a rather easy to assemble stacking cups game.

* Paper Party Cups / Stacking Cups
* Old Box
* Empty milk cartons
* Duck tape
* TMNT Magazine
* Bean Bags
* Reward Stamps
* Masking tape
I purchased the reward stamps and stacking cups from Amazon. The stacking cups were on special off with 50% off and the stamps were purchased at a discounted price for review.

To knock the cups down I made some bean bags from TMNT material and black beans, but if you don't have bean bags, tennis balls or soft balls work just as well. In fact, Wilkinson's have TMNT soft balls for £1.50 at the moment. (Marked up as soccer balls, but they are not that big at all, normal small soft balls, ideal for small hands).
Once at the party I set up the cups and used tape on the floor as a marker for where the little ones needed to stand (very relaxed rule, they pretty much stood where they liked!). As the other games carried rewards such as sweets and party bag filler toys I decided to use the Reward Stamps from Kajman as the prize for knocking down the cups.
|Not sure who looks more angry....|
I'm very pleased to report that is was an extremely popular party game on Sunday. It may have been due to the noise the cups made as they hit the floor, the excitement of the destruction of the cups or the possibility of collecting all 6 stamps. My bet is a combination of all 3.
