Penny Toss


Materials

  • Dishpan, baby bathtub, or kiddie pool
  • Water
  • Open plastic container
  • Pennies

Directions

  1. Fill a dishpan, baby bathtub, or kiddie pool halfway with water.
  2. Place an open plastic container carefully on top of the water so that it floats.
  3. Have each player stand three feet from the dishpan, tub, or pool.
  4. Give each player the same number of pennies.
  5. Have the players take turns tossing pennies at the floating container.
  6. Award a point for each penny that lands in the container.
  7. The player with the most points after all the pennies have been tossed is the winner.
  8. A child playing alone can keep track of how many pennies land in the container in a row.
