Hoop Toss

Sometimes the simplest items can make the day more fun.
This activity requires only three items: a hula hoop, a length of yarn, and a ball.

Outdoor Play: Hang a hula hoop from a tree branch and throw balls through it. Adjust the height of the hoop to make it more challenging. Alternately, if the hoop is hung low, a beach ball can be kicked or rolled through the hoop.
If there are two players, have each player stand on the either side of the hoop and volley the ball through it.

To play inside, you will need a hula hoop, yarn, tape or a tack, and a balloon.

Indoor Play: Hang a hula hoop from a door jam with some tape or a tack and hit a balloon through the hoop.


For an added challenge put a container on the other side of the hoop as a goal.

Use multiple hoops.

Add a scoring system.

Distance and the weight of the ball makes this game more challenging.

Hang the hoop between two trees or posts.
