  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.
  5. Optional - decorate with stickers or anything you want. My son used star stickers.
  6. Scrunch foil or paper into a ball to use as your ball. Ready to play your game!
