Newspaper Golf

Make golf clubs out of newspaper and tape, and your preschooler can play golf indoors.

Materials
  • Newspaper
  • Tape
  • Golf or tennis balls
  • Masking tape or paper

Directions

  1. Make golf clubs for each player by rolling up several sheets of newspaper and taping them securely.
  2. Lay down a sheet of paper or use masking tape to mark several "holes" on the floor or carpet.
  3. Use your golf club to try to hit (roll) the ball to the hole.
  4. Reward the winner (the first to hit the ball to the hole) with a raisin, chocolate chip, or other small treat.
