Julie shared with me this simple game kids can create from time around the house.

Paper Plate Quoits (or Coits)

What you need

Empty 1.25 L Bottles

Rocks or sand

Paper plates 

1. Fill the empty bottles with something to weigh them down like sand or pebbles and screw the lid on.

2. Cut a big hole in the middle of paper plates (and make sure they can easily fit over the top of the bottle).

3. Set the bottles and mark out a line where to throw them from. See how many you can get!  

Idea: Place bottles so there is a different level of difficulty and write the point number on the bottles with permanent marker. Could be 1 for the closest and 5 point for the bottle furtherest away.

Reminds me of a rope quoits game I received as a gift in my childhood. It looked just like this one and I loved it!
