  2. Cut a square hole on each end of the box for the goals.
  3. Paint the inside of the box and the wooden dowels with the black paint. Let dry.
  4. Poke four holes evenly across the long edge of the box, repeat with the second long side of the box. Insert the dowels into the holes.
  5. Snap a popsicle stick in half and tape it to the dowls as shown in the pictures. Repeat with another popsicle stick so that you have 2 halves of each stick on each dowel.
