Egg Carton Kendama Craft

Kendamas are such fun toys to play with. I've been playing with them for years but it wasn't until recently that I discovered it's a traditional Japanese toy -- I always just called it my cup and ball game when I was little.

When I was younger I had one that I played with all of the time, but then the string broke and I was devasted. I was thinking about that the other day and thought there must be a way to make my own version of a kendama!

This craft is tons of fun to make and even more fun to play with afterwards. Essentially it is a ball and a set of three cups. The goal is to try to swing the ball into one of the cups and you can even try bouncing the ball between cups! Just make sure you're in a relatively open space... *giggle*
