How to Make a Ring Toss Throwing Game Crafts Idea for Kids

Crafts Materials Needed:

– cardboard box cover that is at least 14 inches square

– scissors

– rubber jar rings (inside the lids of many jars such as many baby food jars and on the top of bottles) OR take twist ties and tie them into circles / ovals

– paints, markers, or crayons

– wooden clothespins

Step 1

Using a single blade of the scissors to cut 9 pairs of slits, close together, ( two for each clothespin), in the cardboard box cover, as in illustration A above.

Step 2


Number each pair of slits, from 1 to 9, with paints, markers, or crayons. Do not number them in rotation.

Step 3

Force the prongs of 9 wooden clothespins into the slits in the box cover, as in illustration B above.

How to Play the Ring Toss Game

To play the game, place the box cover on the floor or on the ground, and mark off a “Toss Line” about five feet away. Kneel at the toss line and try to toss a rubber jar ring (or twist tie ring) around the clothespin heads for points. The points scored will depend upon the clothespin ringed. Play with a friend and keep score. High score wins.
