Indoor Ring Toss


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


  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.
