Stocking Game

stocking gameMaterials:

  • Long sock
  • Tall cardboard potato chip can
  • Scissors
  • Cotton balls/fiberfill for stuffing
  • White glue
  • Hole punch
  • 18ā€ piece of string

 

Instructions:

Stuff the foot of the stocking with cotton balls leaving the heel portion unfilled. Place the chip can into the sock so the bottom goes all the way down to the heel of the sock. Pull the sock up over the can so it extends about 1.5 inches past the top of the can.

Fold the excess sock material over and glue it to the inside of the can. You can use a cup to hold the sock in place while the glue dries, if necessary.

Have an adult poke a hole in the top of the can. Using about 18-inches of string, tie one end through the hole in the can and attach a small toy to the other end.

****The idea of the game is to try to flip the toy into the stocking while holding the can. Make the game easier by using a shorter string, or harder by using a longer string.
