Mouse Hole Roll

Travis and I made a bit of an indoor circus over the long holiday weekend, including a few cute carnival game ideas we spotted online. The first we put together was a mouse hole rolling game.

To start, you’ll need any box; cut off the flaps and set one flap aside for decoration later. Discard the remaining flaps.

The box doesn’t have to be huge, but the one we had on hand was a fairly good sized. This ended up being great though – it is by far the largest surface Travis and I have ever painted together, and he was gleeful, deciding it was almost like being a house painter.

We slathered three sides and the top in blue paint.

We also painted the remaining flap, then set both aside to dry (safely in the bathroom where little boys and cats wouldn’t bump into them and become covered in wet paint!)

Once dry, our game needed a few final touches. Adults: cut three holes from the bottom to be the mouse hole goals. Kids can then color in mouse templates (we found ours online) and glue on.

Dot markers and the name of the game adorned our cardboard flap, which I then hot glued to the top of the box.

To play the game, simply take turns rolling golf balls or ping pong balls at the target, and see who can get the most little mice into the holes!

Feet work too, of course.

Needless to say, this game was a big hit.
