This Ping Pong Ball Popper Maker Monday project is a blast to make and fun to play with, too. You can create lots of group games with the Ping Pong Ball Popper. Line up friends and see whose ball can shoot the farthest or highest. Take target practice across the yard and record your results.

Making Ping Pong Ball Poppers would be a great diversion at a birthday party or family picnic. Don’t be surprised if grownups want to play, too.

We found this activity at the Remake Learning Days session at Avonworth Primary Center.
