How we did it:

Materials List

  1. twine
  2. sticks
  3. vine
  4. scissors
  5. pruning tool (for cutting vines)
  1. First we looked around in the backyard for some straight sticks, then we cut some old vines off the fence.

  2. I showed Maddie how to wind the vine around and around, into a thick, ten-inch circle.

  3. When the ring had been woven, and seemed sturdy, we cut a piece of jute and tied it on where the ring began and ended, to make it extra sturdy.

  4. Our thickest stick would be the hob. We poked it into the ground. Then we laid four sticks on the ground around it in a square. We were ready to play!

  5. Tossing a ring over the pin (or hub) receives two points, while landing it into the square gets one point. The first to twenty points wins!
