Lay out your yarn to make sure it’s long enough for the ball to go into the plate and cut the yarn.ACraftyArab Ball Toy Toss10

Staple one end of the string to the rounded part of the paper plate. ACraftyArab Ball Toy Toss6

On the other end of the yarn, take a little bit of tape to the yarn so that it doesn’t unravel. I just realized that we forgot to add tape to the list of things you need. Oops.ACraftyArab Ball Toy Toss9

Take the taped yarn and put it into the wood bead. Even with the taped end, we still had to use a knitting needle to help shove it in the hole of the bead.ACraftyArab Ball Toy Toss8

Fold the paper plate over and staple the top of the paper plate.ACraftyArab Ball Toy Toss13

Decorate your ball toss toy and have fun putting the wood bead into the plate. My girls made one each and had fun counting how many times the ball went into the plate. They also made miniature ones for their stuffed animals!
