Indoor Ring Toss

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Children's Busy Book

Paper plates are softer than traditional rings, making this activity safe to play indoors on a rainy day.


Materials

  • Scissors
  • Small paper plates
  • Wine bottle, candlestick, or other tall, steady object

Directions

  1. Cut the center out of each paper plate, leaving a one-inchwide ring.
  2. Set a wine bottle, candlestick, or other tall, steady object on the floor.
  3. Have your child stand back several feet and try to throw the rings so that they land encircling the bottle or candlestick.
  4. A child playing alone can see how many rings he tosses successfully in a designated time. Two or more children can take turns tossing rings to see who has more successful tosses.
  5. You may want to color-code each child's rings or label them with the child's name.
