Aging Expectations

Easy Kids Game – To Make

A while ago, Leah and I made a few crafts using paper plates. You might remember the spirals and suns.

Both are great crafts because they only use paper plates (and crayons and scissors, but you have those).

The last craft we made during our “paper plate” phase was a Ring Toss game. It was easy, cheap, and…fun to play!

Here’s what we did:

  1. ring tossWe took 12 paper plates.
  2. I drew a circle in the middle of each plate.
  3. Leah colored the outer circle of three plates red (on both sides).
  4. I colored the outer circle of three plates yellow (on both sides).
  5. Together we colored the outer circle of three plates blue (both sides) and three plates purple (both sides).
  6. I cut an area out of the center of each circle.
  7. Leah cut around the black line of about three plates.
  8. I cut around the black line of about nine plates.
  9. ring tossI cut a small hole in the center of two additional plates.
  10. I stuck an empty paper towel roll through the hole (of both plates) and taped it in place.

That’s it! Let the fun begin!

We all played and let me tell ya’, it wasn’t easy. The plates are really light so they don’t fly they way you think they might. We then tried variations — we threw two to four plates at one time, much better.

It was a fun craft and a fun game, that we’ve
played again and again since we made it.
