    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!
