Cork Drop

Materials

  • Glass or bowl of water
  • Towel, old sheet, or plastic tablecloth (optional)
  • Ten corks

Directions

  1. Place a glass or bowl full of water on the floor. If you like, place a towel, old sheet, or plastic tablecloth under it to catch splashes.
  2. Have the players take turns. Standing over the bowl or glass with his arm extended at shoulder level, each player drops the corks one at a time into the water.
  3. Award points for successful drops. The player with the most points after each player has dropped ten corks is the winner.
  4. A child playing alone can see how many corks he drops successfully in a designated time.

Keep it hot (or cold)! No one likes cold soup or warm, wilted salad. Use a thermos or ice pack in your child's lunch box to help keep his lunch fresh until it's time to eat.
