Outdoor Turns Indoor Game
Outdoor games can now be indoor fun. This winter, bring the games inside. I’m all about keeping my nephews busy. Anything to keep the boys from tearing down my house. This fun ring toss game made from empty milk bottles can challenge the little ones with sharp hand and eye coordination. You can make this game in little time. If you’re frugal, you can make this game for under $20.
This milk bottle ring toss game is made using old Starbucks Frappuccino bottles or new bottle from the craft store. The rings are made from leftover burlap ropes from my Hanging Planter post. I made 6 rings for 6 bottles in the wooden crate. The challenge is to toss a ring around the neck of the milk bottle. The distance of the toss is entirely up to you. Let the kids enjoy this endless indoor game.
