What you'll need:
- 4 (16-inch) 2 x 4 boards
- 4 (10-inch) 4 x 4 boards
- Spray paint
- Wire netting
- 18-gauge wire
- Wire cutters
- Staple gun and staples
- 30-40 bamboo garden stakes
- Ball pit balls
What you'll do:
Start by screwing the 16-inch 2 x 4 boards together to form a square.
Next, screw the 10-inch 4 x 4 boards to the four corners of the square to make legs.
Give the wood platform a coat of spray paint, and then let the paint dry.
Make a tube out of the wire netting, and use the 18-gauge wire to hold it in place.
Place the wire tube on top of the wooden platform and use the staple gun to secure the tube to the platform.
Slide the bamboo garden stakes through the openings in the wire tube. Make sure the stakes go all different directions and don't leave any large gaps.
Fill the top of the tube with the ball pit balls, and the game is ready to play!
