Supplies Needed:

  • Toilet paper tube
  • Straws
  • Hole punch
  • Large beads or marbles



1. Fold your toilet paper tube in half.

2. Punch holes all over the tube.  Make sure to punch through the top and bottom layer of your folded tube so that you can push a straw through.

3. Cut an opening out of the bottom of the toilet paper tube so your beads have somewhere to fall.

4. Once you have punched all your holes, insert your straws.

5. Put your beads on top of the straws.

6. Play Kerplunk!  To play, take turns pulling a straw out.  Be careful, you don’t want to be the one that makes all the beads drop!
