Button Toss

To make a game that everyone can play, you will need: three egg cartons, 1″ square piece of pasteboard, dark-colored felt-tip pen, scissors, glue and five large, flat buttons.

  1. 1.

    Remove egg carton lids and glue egg cup sections side by side to pasteboard square by putting a dab of glue on outside bottom of each cup.

  2. 2.

    With felt-tip pen, print different numbers in bottom of each egg cup.

  3. 3.

    Place flat of thirty-six egg cups on floor, take five or six long steps away from cups, and draw a line. Players must stand behind line to toss buttons, one at a time, toward egg cups. When buttons have all been tossed, player totals score for any buttons still in cups.
