There is nothing better than using recyclable materials to create a fun game for kids! Follow our easy instructions to make a DIY tin can toss game for your next Halloween party!
We love making games. This tin can toss game went along great with our Frankenstein punch game.
- Spray Paint (optional)
- 6 Clean Tin Cans
- Acrylic Craft Paint
- Small Brush
- Paint Marker (optional)
- Other Craft Supplies such as felt, googly eyes, leftover cloth, etc. (optional)
Before You Begin
Decide on the characters you want to make. We have a cat, ghost, pumpkin and vampire. Other ideas include different monsters, mummies or witches.
Step 1: Clean and Paint Your Cans
We chose to use leftover spray paint to paint our cans. You can use any colors you want depending on the characters you are making.
You could also use craft paint to paint the cans. Be careful if you use high-gloss spray paint. It may be hard to paint the extra details on a glossy surface.
Step 2: Paint Details
Add details such as a jack-o-lantern face using acrylic craft paint. Let your cans fully dry.
Step 3: Add Additional Details
You can use a hot glue gun to attach felt or even use a metallic paint pen to outline your details. Just have fun creating.
Step 4: Play Your Game
You can either make this a bowling game where the ball must be rolled or a toss game where children can throw. The cans were able to be knocked over with a heavier wiffle ball, but any ball or beanbag should do.
