You can place this basketball toss at different angles, stand at different lengths apart for a more challenging time, there is endless possibilities for this simple toy.

Total Time: 20 minutes + paint drying time


  • tissue box
  • hot glue
  • scissors
  • stickers
  • foil
  • acrylic paint + paint brush
  • paper cup


  1. Optional - paint your empty tissue box. My son chose green. Then we used the same technique as before and dabbed on a lighter green with cotton balls. Allow paint to dry (I waited overnight).
  2. Basketball Toss Game - painted side of tissue box with light green paint dabbed over darker green

  3. Trim your cup to make a smaller hoop. If you don't have a paper cup you could use a toilet paper roll or paper towel roll for a more challenging basketball toss game. Optional - used sticker ribbon to decorate rim of cup.
  4. Attach cup to dried tissue box with hot glue.
