World Cup Finger Soccer Crafts for Children

When I was a child, my Dad would stay up at night during World Cup season to watch the games on TV. Though I didn't know much about soccer, I thought it was one of the memorable father-daughter bonding activities to watch the games together.

Pei Pei and Hao Hao's DaDi is not a soccer fan, so he would not stay up at night to watch the World Cup games (anyway, we can only catch snippets of the games free on TV during the news). The children are still able to experience the World Cup fever with their DaDi at home - finger soccer! (No real soccer playing at home please! I don't want anything to be broken!)



Materials:
Toilet paper rolls x 3
Coloured paper
Markers / coloured pens
Scissors
Glue

Step 1:
Press one toilet paper roll, and cut three stripes width-wise, about 1 cm each. Assemble them as shown to make the soccer ball.



Step 2:
Decorate the other two toilet paper rolls using coloured paper and coloured pens to make the players. Cut a hole at the back, wide enough for two fingers to enter.



Step 3:
Play finger soccer game! You can use any basket or recycled box as the goal!
