We're doing a "Skylander" theme party - so we're calling this game, "Dino Rang Toss". Dino Rang is a character on the game or something. You can improvise based on whatever theme you choose (if you are fruity like me and do "theme" parties).
First. I don't drink. So how was I going to get 48 beer bottles? I asked friends! Had 48 of them in a snap. I did give one friend $2 because her husband usually turns them in for deposit. She told me not too but whatever. I'm too good like that sometimes. I soaked them in soapy water and the labels all peeled off greatly and the beer smell left.
I had a big box from Amazon that I was saving. It was the perfect size for 48 bottles. I reinforced it with some more packing tape. I found a paint sample that I got for free from Valspar that was sitting, collecting dust in the basement. So I used that to paint the box.
We recently replaced our shower curtain rod which came with new rings. So I saved the old, crappy, plastic rings - they work great for ring toss! If you don't have old shower curtain rings laying around, you can pick them up cheap at the Dollar Tree or Wal-Mart (even though I hate Wal-Mart).
I printed out the words, "Dino Rang Toss" and glued them on the box just for a little pizazz. There you have it - a practically free and environmentally friendly party game.
