Catch Cup

Skillfully caught

Ben and Mila have so much fun thinking up and making their own games.

Of course, they didn't think of just any game. No, how could it be otherwise, the two of them have made a catching game that looks like a bear. Ben and Mila have photographed every step of the game so that you can make it yourself. So quickly find a paper cup and let the fun begin!

Step 5:

Then cut a piece of jute string about 40-50 cm long. Thread one end of the string through the hole and tie a thick knot in the end. Now the end of the string can no longer slip out.

Step 6:

Now put some craft glue on the other end of the string and stick the cone to it. Let the glue dry well. When it sticks firmly to the end of the string, you can start!
