Had my son find our few random sheets of poster board we had stored in a closet and some scissors. We drew some circles, cut some holes and hung it up. We didn't even take the time to make it look pretty! Then he got to work folding paper airplanes!
We put a value next to all the holes and have had lots of competitions of various sorts.
- Get the most points in certain number of throws
- First person to get to 50 points
- Go in order - 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and so on
- First to score a random called out number
It took about 10 minutes to to find the board and cut the circles and we had planes ready to fly as soon as I hung it up (used painter's tape so I wouldn't ruin the wall). But it's keep the kids entertained for hours! Seriously! Who knew? We even took it down and they asked for it to get hung back up today. What cheap and easy summer activities have you done this year?
