  • Patterned paper, The Great Circus Company 12" x 12" Paper Pack,

  • Mod podge
  • Paintbrush
  • Sports ball for tossing


  1. Collect 6 tin cans and spray paint half of them red and the other half teal.

  2. Cut patterned paper to fit around the can; use mod podge to adhere it to the can as well as seal the paper. Let dry completely.

  3. To play the game, stack the cans in a pyramid formation. Each player takes a turn tossing the ball at the cans to see who can knock down the most cans. The player to knock down the most cans in a series of rounds wins the game!
