Instructions for Making a Recycled Ring Toss Game
You’ll be able to easily put together this recycled ring toss game in under 15 minutes! It’s so fast and simple!
Make sure the shoebox or cardboard box is empty, and wrap it with wrapping paper. We used brown kraft paper for a ring toss game that works in all seasons, but a fun variation for a holiday class party would be to use seasonal wrapping paper!
Next, take the empty paper towel roll and use the scissors to cut slits in the bottom of the roll, approximately 1/4″ long each. Cut them all the way around the bottom of the roll.
Gently fold the slits on the bottom of the paper towel roll outward. This will form a base, which makes it easier to glue the paper towel roll to the shoebox.
Hot glue the paper towel roll to the middle of the shoebox. The hot glue forms a sturdy bond and makes the ring toss sturdy. We don’t recommend that you use school glue for this project!
Next, we used washi tape (or decorative paper tape), to decorate both the shoebox and the paper towel roll. This was a quick and easy way to add vibrant color to our recycled ring toss game!
If you don’t have washi tape on hand, decorate your recycled ring toss game with decorative wrapping paper, stickers, markers, crayons, or anything else decorative!
Finally, cut the center circles out of several paper plates. The paper plates with centers removed are the rings in this recycled ring toss game!
Feel free to decorate the rings in any way you like, or leave them plain!
Now your recycled ring toss game is ready to play! Have kids line up and see how many rings they can toss onto the paper towel tube.
They are guaranteed to have fun! You’d be amazed. . .
They’ll be entertained and this fun game will hardly cost you a thing to make! Enjoy!
