Today’s Winter Olympic event is the Snowball Ring Toss. We’re trying to get 5 snowballs (or marshmallows) into each of the 5 Olympic rings! It may look like a simple task, but it’s harder than it looks! We had to go around a few times and practice as this event takes some skill!

Supplies for Snowball Ring Toss:

  • marshmallows, mini or regular
  • 5 Olympic colored pipe cleaners, blue, black, red, yellow, and green

Loop your pipe cleaners into a circle and twist the two ends together. Place all 5 circles in their order of the Olympic rings.

Standing a few feet away from the rings, try tossing a marshmallow into each of the 5 rings. Here’s my first attempt above, with only 3 making it in! I’m not sure if I’m Olympic quality, but I’m going to keep practicing, hoping to make the Olympic team!
