Table Hockey


Materials

  • Blocks or hardcover books
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Wad of paper

Directions

  1. Create a rectangular "rink" on a large table or the floor by lining up blocks or hardcover books to make walls.
  2. Leave an opening at each end of the rink to make goals.
  3. The players use Popsicle sticks to shoot a wad of paper (the "puck") toward each other's goals and to guard their own goals.
  4. Let the kids play hockey-style (each player tries to gain possession of the puck and then score) or penalty shot-style (the players take turns trying to score).
