This is what we got up to with the kids on Easter Monday as it was a miserable day outside. Using only scraps of adhesive foam core, plastic cups and a off cut of purple front runner that I had in the cupboard, we made a pretty good Pool table at no cost!
The kids played on it for hours and had heaps of fun, although the cue was confiscated a few times when it was used as a sword or golf club.
As it is only made from foam core it probably won't last long with a three year old, but oh well, it was fun making it and a proper one probably wouldn't last much longer to tell you the truth!
I had also had to do a few reinforcements on the pockets with some tape as they were knocked off a few times at the start.
- Off cuts of foam core
- 6 x plastic cups
- Off cut of purple carpet
- EVA glue (and a bit of framing backing tape)
I hope you like our handy work to keep the kids busy on a rainy day?
