Ring Toss Using Olympic Ring Colors

Gross motor does not have to be hard. In fact it can be fun. This ring toss is a fun idea that can be done inside or outside with very little changes! We enjoy doing gross motor ideas in our house.

I always liked to change up how we do an activity. So you will see that we used several different containers to toss the rings into. This gives them a challenge and makes it fun.

What you need: cones, baskets, bins, masking tape, and 5 colors of pipe cleaners for each person. (The cones, basket and bin were found in the dollar section at Target over the past year.)

First the girls made their rings, by folding the pipe cleaners around each other. My oldest and middle did great with theirs, but my youngest needed a little help. This was a great way to work some fine motor into our gross motor activity.

The girls got a chance to try tossing the rings. They stood behind a tape line. We used three different items to toss the rings into or on: cones, baskets, and bins.

The bins were the easiest for them ot use. You could just toss them in really easy.

The basket was slightly harder but you could still get it in if you worked at it.

The cones were the hardest for them to do. They worked harder at getting the rings on. My youngest often took a step up so that she had an easier time.

After we got done we talked about which was easier to toss the rings to and which toss was the easiest or hardest. Then they set up their own tossing challenge with no cones and did it. Rose and Amelia tossed the rings and Mary took them back.
