Day 11: Outside adventure - Acorn Tossing game

Book: Disney Princess Ready, Set, Throw! (Disney Princess)

In the story, Briar rose(Sleeping beauty) and her aunts help the squirrels gather nuts(pecans) to a squirrel hole by playing a game. The game is to toss pecans into a tree hole. Everyone gets a turn, they toss five pecans one by one into the hole. CJ loves the story and the game.

Indoor play: We played the game by tossing the ping pong balls into a basket. CJ wanted to aim at a tree hole. So we also used an empty tissue paper box and acorns.

Aim and Toss the ball into the basket

Just miss!

The Day 11 Challenge of 30 days to hands on play was from Anna of Imagination tree to spend 15 minutes of time taking a walk outside and turn it into a mini-adventure, whatever the weather! We took the tossing game outdoors

Outdoor play: CJ wanted to play the game by tossing acorns into a tree hole. We set a tree stump with a hole as target and fixed a start line. Together we gathered a pile of acorn near the start line.

Each player gets five acorns.
The players take turns, Each player throws/tosses the acorns one by one at the tree hole/Target line.
The player who tosses max. acorns into the hole wins.

We enjoyed the game. It was real fun to play it outdoors.

  4. My son always has a stash of acorns somewhere in the house. He will really enjoy throwing them into a "tree hole" tissue box.
