Cardboard Box Mini Golf | Stay at Home Kids Craft Ideas

Do you have a cardboard box lying around and looking for something crafty to do with the kids? A simple and fun activity is at-home mini golf.

by Katrina Gogel

We stumbled across this great idea on Google last week after we had a delivery that left us with a big cardboard box. Since its creation it has provided our family with hours of fun (and also a few dents in the walls….)

All you will need is a cardboard box (doesn’t have to be huge, a shoebox will be fine), scissors, some paint, brushes, a texta, and a golf putter + ball.

Step One: Cut out different sized arches in the box with either scissors or a stanley knife.

Step Two: Get painting! Make it as bright and colourful as possible.

Step Three: Once the paint has dried, grab a texta and write numbers above the arches. Give the smaller holes a higher number, and the larger, easier one’s smaller numbers.

Step Four: Grab a sheet of paper and assign a child to be the scorer (great maths practice for them)! Work out how many turns each player gets, and the distance they have to hit the ball from.

Step Five: It’s time to play! Set the mini golf box up in a hallway or living room, grab the golf putter and ball and enjoy some family fun.
