Space Pinball

Homemade Space Pinball!
We made this pinball game from a cardboard box, straws, egg crate tops, popsicle sticks and glitter paints. We then added a marble and let the children try to move it into the yellow popsicle stick goal at the end.
It was the perfect size and style for my Pre-K students. The children had a ball (no pun intended) playing this homemade pinball game.

Why make one??
*It's open ended and they can help make it
*It's great for hand-eye coordination
*It's physically engaging (as the child is holding and manipulating the box)
*It teaches social skills (cheering on friends and taking turns)
*It brings in new vocabulary and positional language
* It's open ended and lots of fun!
Give it a try and please share with us your results! : )
