1> The paper plate ring toss
We cut out the paper plate into the rings. M painted them with her favorite tempera paints. M recalled a similar project shown on Art attack. She wanted me to make a doll out of a bottle for her to toss the ring at. She remembered the show’s instruction completely. Apart from the stick shown in the picture above, we also made a doll out of a pepsi pet bottle. I will be sharing the details of same in my next post.
A stick works well too. It can be easily hammered into soil and the kids can take turn tossing the rings at the sticks.
2> Blow the straw rocket
This is another of the simplest idea. All you need in scraps of paper and a straw. Cut a paper into a rectangle. tape the sides to turn into a pipe. Turn one of the ends into a pointed triangle. Secure with sticky tape. You can draw graphic with markers and add a tail.
When ready. all the kids need to do is blow into the straw. Kids can take turn and the winner is the one whose rocket lands the farthest.
3> The Icecream stick helicopter
This third idea requires only a craft stick/ icecream stick and a straw. Secure the straw in the middle of the craft stick with sticky tape. To make the copter fly, just roll between your palms.
