We recently made a few fun washcloth pom poms for a backyard water day! We had so much fun with our target toss game, I made a little how-to video with my kids. It’s the perfect game for a hot summer day. You can set it up right in your own backyard, or over at Grandma’s house works too! Take a piece of chalk, these water pom pom sponges, and you’re set for a summer game day with the kids!
Water Pom Pom Target Toss
Here’s the video of the kids in action, playing a fun toss game with their water pom poms!!
We’re playing this game almost every day this summer! It’s a great way to cool off and have a little fun. Kids can work on their hand-eye coordination skills as well, making it a learning game. Turn this target practice into even more educational learning with these ideas:
- As you draw the target circles with chalk, but a number inside each target. The farther away the circle, the higher the number. Add up their score at the end of the round.
- Place an alphabet letter inside each of the chalk circles and kids are supposed to spell a word with their target practice. Maybe it’s for small kids and they practice their name, or it’s for a type of puzzle or word code.
- Make it an even more advanced math game and ask the kids to figure out the answer to a math problem, like 3×4 or 17+15. Kids add up the numbers in their head and the throw the sponge at the target with the number they think the answer is!
Have fun this summer getting wet!
