Learn how to create and play your own skee ball game!


  • 3 laundry baskets(or 3 shoe boxes)
  • A tennis ball(or crumpled paper)
  • A Shoe box
  • Loose cardboard
  • Tape
  • Yourself

Set Up:

  • If you don’t have tennis balls, you’ll need 5 pieces of paper and crumple them up into a ball.
    • You should have 5 paper balls
  • Next to make a ramp you’ll need a shoe box and put it so the lid is on the floor.
  • Grab the loose cardboard and try to make a smooth upward surface so if you roll a ball it’ll project upward
  • To play you will make a spot where you will roll the ball from
  • Next you will set up your ramp about 5 steps (heel to toe) from the spot you will be rolling it from
  • Lastly you’ll need either three laundry baskets or 3 shoe boxes. You will line them up in a straight line.
    • You can space them out however far you see fit as long as there is space in between the boxes/baskets. 

How to Play:

  • Whoever is playing will go to the spot from where you will roll, each player gets 5 rolls.
  • The player to score the highest after 5 rolls wins the game.
  • The closest box to the ramp is 10 points, the middle box is worth 20 points, the last box is worth 30 points
  • Lastly, have fun and try not to break anything.
