Dime Store Games: Ball-in-the-Hole

Steps:5
These little boxed universes can be lined with scenes cut out of old or new Christmas cards. It takes less patience to make the games than it does to play them. The trick is to get a bead to roll into a hole. Your scene determines whether the beads are stars, bells, or bright holly berries.
Materials
  • Small box
  • Picture
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Beads
  • White craft glue
  • Glass or thin plastic
  • Super glue
  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Stiff paper or cardboard
