Our kids go to a small private school and one of the requirements of this school is to have a parent volunteer. My wife chose to teach a small woodshop class on how to build a DIY Pucket Game. We prepared and pre-cut all the plywood pieces, bungee cords and pucks. So the kids needed to assemble the pieces using a hammer and finish nails. Then tie the knots on the bungee cord and sand the pucks to make them smooth.

The kids enjoyed building the Pucket Game as well as playing it after class with their peers. Now, my wife is one of their favorite volunteers and kids can’t wait for the next project.

Also, you might be interested in my previous game projects I built: Mancala Boards Game, Triangle Peg Game and Cornhole Boards.

Pucket Game Rules

Place 8 pucks on each side of the board.
Count to 3 and at the same time each player will catapult them through the gate, using elastic band. Player who gets all pucks across first, wins.
If a puck flies off the board, play stops and the player who shot it must retrieve it.
You can’t use hands to push pucks toward the gate, but you can move them to the side of your board to clear the way.
Have fun, over and over again!

Great project for my 4H classes this summer! Thanks for the idea, I’d seen them before but with not as much detail! What diameter and thickness are the pucks? Thanks again for a great project idea for the kids!

Hi Dennis, the pucks are 1/2” wide. Check out my website for more details.
