One of my favorite sports is carpet ball but we don’t have a carpet ball table and there is no chance of getting one. So I made a carpet ball table for my dolls that you can sort of play. Here is how I did it.
I cut the smaller box in half and cut the top off. I put cardboard on the open ends. I cut the other box to how deep I wanted it.
I cut holes for the pockets and taped the flaps together.
I taped the pockets in with the cardboard edge near the ends of the box.
I covered four paper towel tubes with contact paper.
And taped them to the the base.
I covered the whole thing with contact paper.
I covered the inside with green paper.
Katlin wanted to try it out but the ball did not stay put very well.
I painted the top with green paint for more traction.
And then I cut the tubes and taped mini cans filled with chia seeds (Mom had too many chia seeds and they were heavy.) into the tubes.
Later I covered the paint with cloth. The cloth helps the balls stay better and roll better. I am using marbles for balls and the shooter as the throwing ball.
I had fun making this and will have fun playing with it.
