Ball Tossing Game

Activity 8 – Ball Tossing

Tossing balls at cans is a great way to build those number and quantity skills.  Have the kids count the number of cans to start and as they knock down the cans have them do some subtraction to determine how many cans are left to knockdown.

Setting up the cans is also a fun way for your child to do some problem-solving.  Have them figure out how to build a pyramid with the cans that are given to them.  This game can also be played with bowling pins or water bottles.

I have learned that this old-time carnival game can also be played indoors on those rainy days.
