Day 4: Ring Toss

Day 4



Another blast from the past is this ring toss game.  I made the rainbow one for Lucy's birthday party for the kids to play, and the purple one was for the annual picnic for the mom's group I am in.  
They were a big hit and Lucy still pulls out the game to play with her friends when we are outside.  

Supplies:

Approx. 6 ft of PVC pipe (I used 1/2 for the rainbow one and 3/4 for the purple one)
4 end caps
4 elbow joints
1 cross joint


I cut the pipe into 1' pieces, but when we put it together, I realized that 1' was too big, so I recut them to 8".

See how big it was?  Huge.  So cutting it down was a good choice.


Much better.


Next, I took all the pieces outside and painted them.

As you can see in the picture below, I used pool rings as the rings for the game.  When I took the pictures above, I couldn't find the rings again, but we have been cleaning out and reorganizing the garage so it's no wonder I can't find them.  


I didn't glue the pieces together because for storage, it's easier to take it apart, but you could if you wanted to.  You could also change the sizes of the poles as fits for you.  Whatever is the easiest for you!

And that is the end of day 4!

  2. I love things made with PVC pipe. They are easy to make and lots of fun for parties. Graduation parties, 4th of July and even up north camping. They are easy to store. Thank you for the idea.
