This ring toss post was first seen over on A Little Craft in Your Day last September. 🙂

Good morning! I love to include my kiddos in my crafty endeavors. I love making things for them & with them. With summer here (Yay!), we have more time to spend outside playing games, swimming & having cookouts & just having fun together outside. This DIY Ring Toss Game is perfect for all those summer get togethers you have coming up! Annnnnd best of all, this game uses those pool rings you probably already have. Let’s get started. :)

To make this ring toss game you will need:

wooden dowel
wood screw
table saw
wood glue (optional)
pool rings

I made two of these, so we could make a game out of it. You can then have two kiddos play at once, and then they can see who can get the most rings on. A little competition is always fun. 🙂

First, I cut 2 pieces of plywood to 12 by 10 inches. I made a little X right in the middle. This is where you’ll screw in your dowel.

I cut the wooden dowel into two 15-inch pieces. Tip: Before I screwed my dowel in, I predrilled a hole, so my dowel didn’t split when I screwed it in. You can also put a little dab of wood glue on the end before you drill it in. This is to give it some added strength.
