Jingle bells toss game is one the most fun activities that you can enjoy with the whole family. It is a very simple game and every kid can play it. In this game you need to set six to ten cups in a bowling pin shape on different edges of your table. One player stands at each end of the table.

You each take turns tossing balls in relation to the formation of the opposite side cup. You get two throws on each turn, and you can only throw one at a time. The aim is to toss the bells into the cups. I do not recommend putting any liquid in cups when playing with instruments.

This, however, makes the cups very unstable. You can double the cups or measure them in extra shares for added strength..
