Cactus Ring Toss is the Lawn Game You Need RN
Ring toss just got a very adorable upgrade. Can you believe we made these out of cardboard boxes? Follow along to see how it's done.
All you need is cardboard, paint and a utility knife to make your very own cactus ring toss game.
Grab a large piece of cardboard and draw a simple potted cactus. (Make sure the arms are thinner than the rings you'll be tossing!) Cut it out with a utility knife. Cut a long, thin strip from the bottom to the middle of the cactus. Then trace the cactus onto a new piece of cardboard and cut it out. On this second cactus, cut out a long, thin strip from the top to the middle.
Make sure the two cacti can comfortably sit perpendicular to one another.
Time to paint! Enlist your kids to help paint each cactus. Start with a layer of dark green, then use a lighter shade of green to paint on stripes, dots and any patterns you like. We painted our "planter" pink.
Have fun with making up your own prickly patterns.
Look at that little family of cacti!
Take it outside and get ready for hours of family fun.
