Frisbee Golf

This game requires two or more players.

Materials

  • Boxes, sticks, rocks, and so on
  • Markers or index cards
  • One Frisbee or gallon ice cream pail lid per player
  • Pen or pencil
  • Paper

Directions

  1. Set up a Frisbee golf course using boxes, sticks, rocks, and so on as "holes."
  2. Number the holes consecutively by writing on them or attaching numbered index cards to them.
  3. Number each Frisbee as well and give one to each player.
  4. Have the players take turns throwing their Frisbees at the first hole.
  5. Tell the players whether their Frisbees must land in the hole (if it's a box) or on it (if it's a stick or rock).
  6. Count and record how many throws it takes each player to get her Frisbee to the hole.
  7. When all the players have completed the first hole, move on to the second.
  8. Continue playing this way until all the players have completed the course.
  9. The player with the lowest score at the end of the course is the winner.
