::: homemade milk bottle game
As the weather recently has been wet then warm and wet again we have been keeping the children’s interest by playing lots of games – they just love them, don’t they?
The outside play didn’t last all that long on one of the wetter days, so we searched for something else to do inside that was active as the rain poured down.
We had some used and cleaned plastic milk bottles with the handle on one side, so chopped off the bottom and tipped them upside down.
Then the children threaded a big bead onto some fine elastic which was tied to the side of the bottle opposite the handle.
The objective was to swing the bead up and into the bottle.
Although we adults managed it quite well (we don’t like to miss out!), it was quite a challenge for the younger children …
but this little friend said “When things are hard I just have to keep on trying”!
And keep on trying she did …
We love home made games – cheap, available and our own rules!!!
