Red or Blue Cups
Rectangle of plywood or foam board
Ping Pong Balls
I started with a rectangle of plywood and spray painted it blue. I then lined it with cups and used push pins to attach them to the plywood base. (Foam board would work just as easily) I went with ten cups but you may obviously use as many or as little as you choose. Next, I adhered stars on the cups to jazz them up a bit.

I decorated ping pong balls with star stickers and sewed a little drawstring bag to keep them in.
This is my son trying his luck at the game. I love that kids of any age can play and you may manipulate the difficulty level by choosing where they must stand to throw the balls. Another fun variation would be to assign point values to each row of cups. I have found that kids just love games in general. I hope this is a big hit at the party!
