Play Chair Hat Toss

Think of this as an indoor/outdoor version of horseshoes. As simple as it is, though, it’s remarkably entertaining past-time that teaches kids to throw.

Prep Time:

1 Minute

Realistic Time It Will Entertain a Child:

10-15 minutes

How to Set Up:

Turn over a kitchen chair so that its legs stick up. Find a hat — baseball is best but winter, cowboy or beach work.

How to Play:

Try to throw the hat onto the legs of the chair. That’s it. Want to complicate it a bit? Give each leg a point value. Now we’re learning about counting (but mostly just throwing a hat around). If kids are super into it, have them make DIY rings out of rope or cardboard.
