Penny Tossing Game


Activity Overview

Create a fun indoor penny tossing game out of cardboard tubes from the recycle bin. In this game, the cardboard tubes are attached to a sturdy base and players toss pennies and try to get their pennies into the tubes. Each tube is designated with a certain point value which adds to the challenge. Be sure to create a high point value tube that will add to the excitement. This game also is great practice for adding when the point values are tallied with each successful toss.

  • Scissors
  • Duck Tape
  • Markers or paint

  5. Face the number side of the tubes facing all in the same direction and arrange each tube one by one on the sturdy cardboard and tape the flaps down to the cardboard with Duck Tape.
