Penny/Cup Game
Sent in by: Lisa of Warren, RI

Don't let the penny plunge!

Get a cup filled with water, a paper napkin, 2 sharpened pencils, a penny and a rubber band.

Open the napkin and put it over the cup. Put the rubber band around the rim of the cup over the napkin so that the napkin fits tightly on the cup. Put the penny in the middle of the napkin.

Two players take turns poking a hole in the napkin with the pencil. The entire tip of the pencil has to go through the napkin.

The person who doesn't make the penny fall into the cup is the winner.
