Indoor Ring Toss

Here is a simple ring toss game that I made with buttons, pipe cleaners, and thick paper. It takes only a few minutes to put together, and it works surprisingly well. The buttons add weight to the rings, so they fly through the air nicely. If you want to make your own, just get out some thick paper (or cardboard), tape, pipe cleaners, and buttons. Then look at the instructional photos below. Happy ringing!

    I am going to have to try this idea with the 3 boys I nanny--they will love both helping to make it and using it.

    I tried to make one of these last year. I glued a bunch of mega block legos together to form a tower and ties rope together for the rings! I love how simple yours is!
