Who doesn’t love a game of Can Knockdown? It’s fun, it’s a great birthday party game and best of all it’s a great outdoor activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Even if you don’t have much money to spend on a party for games etc. this is a great way to save some $$$!

I recently attended a birthday party for my friend’s little girl and my friend made the Can Knockdown game herself. All she did was save some cans from the pantry, take the labels off and had the birthday girl help decorate them with paper doilies, pretty paper and string. It looked so great and the kids had a ball!

Depending on the age of the children will depend where you put your starting line to throw from. This could be a skipping rope straightened out or some masking tape. Then all you do is grab a small ball lying around the house and let the games begin! Oh and an older child comes in handy as a helper to pick the cans back up again after each go 😉
