Here's what you will need:
|Step1:Stuff the foot of the sock, leaving the heel portion
empty. Push the can into the sock so that the bottom of the can fills the
heel portion of the foot. Pull the sock up over the can as far as it will
go and trim the top of the sock so that about 1 1/2 inches (about 4 centimeters
) of it extends
over the top of the can.
Step 2: Rub glue around the inside rim of the can and fold the extra sock material over the rim to the inside of the can. Slide the drinking glass into the top of the can to hold the sock in place until the glue dries, then remove the glass.
Step3: Punch a hole in the plastic top of the can. Tie one end of the yarn through the hole. Tie a small toy to the other end of the yarn.
The object of the game is to hold the bottom of the can and try to flip the toy into the stocking. You can make the game harder by using a longer string and easier by using a shorter string.
