Such a simple idea!
Next time you empty a milk carton, don’t throw it away! 
Any other plastic carton with a handle will also work (vinegar, dish soap, etc.)
Cut away the front of the carton, leaving the handle to make a “catcher’s mitt”. 
Attach string, cording, shoelace, etc.
by tying one end to the milk carton and one to a foam ball, or yarn pom-pom.
This will provide fun and laughter, challenging your eye-hand coordination and coordination.
Make one for everyone in the family and have a contest.
It looks easy… but is it?
What else can you make from empty milk cartons?
