After we recently turned a large cardboard box into a boat, my son has been quite obsessed with turning boxes into toys. Which is lucky because it’s a very frugal way to make something recyclable into something fun and usable!
With the latest box I decided to make a golf game. I’d bought a toy golf club and ball set for my son last summer – it is very good with a large and oversized foam head on the club. It comes with two balls which was actually perfect for this game.
I printed three numbers: 1, 5 and 10 – but you could use whatever you like depending on the ability of your child. I glued them over the arches. And the toy was ready! I set everything out for my son to find.
I demonstrated how to knock each ball into the box, and then add up the two numbers. I think this is why having only two balls is useful – it keeps the addition easy and makes it very definite that a turn is two balls. Then it was time for him to have a go!Indoor Golf Game for Preschoolers made from a cardboard box Click To Tweet
