DIY Felt Ball Shooters

DIY Felt Ball Shooters

These felt ball shoot­ers are the per­fect indoor activ­ity to keep the kids occu­pied while school is out for the sum­mer. You can use just about any round object, but the felt balls are our favorite because they go far and are soft enough to not hurt any­thing. You can make your own in lit­er­ally a few min­utes and have a blast with the whole family!

What You Need

  • Paper cups
  • Bal­loons
  • Craft knife
  • Scis­sors
  • Con­tact paper
  • Hole punch
  • Felt balls

Step 1

Using the x-acto knife, cut out the bot­tom of the cup. I sug­gest doing it from the bot­tom since most paper cups have a ridge there to help guide the knife.

Step 2

Tie a knot into the deflated bal­loon. Just like you nor­mally would but with­out all the hot air.

Step 3

Grab your scis­sors and cut the top part of the bal­loon off. The cut off end is what you will stretch over the cup.

Step 4

If you feel so inclined (as I did) you can dec­o­rate your cups too! I used some con­tact paper and a hole punch to make lit­tle polka dots. But you could do any­thing you like to dress them up!
