Punch out party game

This is a simple project I knocked out this weekend, it’s the base for a child’s birthday party punch-out game. Once it’s painted, solo cups with tissue paper over the top and prizes inside will be glued into the holes with a hot glue gun. This projects was fun to make, it required no planing and a very limited number of tools. The hardest thing about it was making the 25 3-1/2″ diameter holes, and then sanding them smooth. Considering the amount of praise I got for making it, the time I spent was well spent.

    Pretty good return for a (relatively) easy project. I’m curious about what you plan to use as the “balls” – can’t be too heavy (as to pose a hazard to others) but must be heavy enough to push through the tissue.

      I’ve been told the kids are supposed to pick a hole, and poke their hand through the tissue paper to grab the prize.

    Makes sense – much better idea than the “ball toss” I envisioned. Thanks
