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 for the Ring Toss Activity

(The cones, basket and bin were found in the dollar section at Target over the past year.)

How we did the Ring Toss Activity

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.

Toss the Rings into the Bin

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.

Toss the Rings into the Basket

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

Toss the Rings onto the Cones

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.
