So we did a Pokemon go birthday party for my youngest son. I made this Pokemon Go cup game and thought I would share it with you. The kids had a lot of fun playing it and loved getting their own Pokeball and Pokemon for their prize. All the kids played with the game and the prize for a while it was nice to see them having fun!
Building the Pokemon Ball for the Cups
You will need to cut out ten red circles from construction paper. I used a cup to cut out the circles it was easier to make better circles.
Cut out 5 White circles then you will need to cut them in half.
Cut out 1O small black and white circle for the middle
I then cut out 10 black strips to cover the middle of the ball where the white and red meet
After you get all the pieces cut out here is how you glue them on
First, take the red piece and a white half piece then glue the white onto the red like the picture below.
Next, take a black strip and glue it to the middle where the white and red meet. Picture below shows this.
Now you can glue the small black circle on and the small white on top of it in the middle of the ball. You should have your finished Pokemon paper ball now.
I added them togeather like the picture below. I did a row of 4 cups, then a row of 3 cups, then 2 cups, then 1 cup. Similar to beer pong set up just no beer 🙂 You can add some water for stability the cups tip over pretty easy.
Now you can do the ping pong Pokemon character ball.
I used Pokemon confetti with Pokemon characters mixed it’s in the picture below. There were two Pokemon to a confetti piece so I cut them out of the confetti.
Tape the character using clear scotch tape to the ping pong ball.
How to play the Pokemon Go Cup Game “Catch Them All”
I called it “Catch them all” So the goal is to get the Pokemon into the “ball” cup. When they get the Pokemon (ping pong ball) into the cup they have caught a Pokemon. We had the kids line up and take a Pokemon ball and each takes a turn until they have caught a Pokemon. Then as their prize, they received a Pokemon ball with a Pokemon in it.
