Paper Plate Ring Toss

Play Paper Plate Ring Toss! Cut out the center of paper plates to make the rings, and decorate them. As they dry, fill plastic bottles with sand, water or pebbles to weigh them down. Then write one of the following sets of numbers on the bottles: 1, 2, 3 or 5, 10, 15 or 10, 50, 100 (smaller numbers for younger kids, bigger numbers for older ones). Give each player the same number of rings (between 2 and 4 to start). Set down the bottles and have the first player toss the rings from a few feet away. Ask them to describe where the rings land. When a ring lands around a bottle, the player earns the number of points that is written on the bottle. (Older kids should try to add all points earned, and little ones should focus on describing where the rings land.) Invite the next player to go, keeping track of their points until all rings have been tossed. The person with the most points wins!
