Welcome to Wednesday MRASP-ers! It's a beautiful day and we have some fun activities to keep you moving! On Zoom we have Veronica's Hangout, Drawing Games with Charlotte, and Get Active with Carra! Head over to the calendar to sign up and we'll see you there! Today on the blog we have a DIY tossing game, a new take on frisbee, an art maze, and a sweet treat! Let's get started . . .
DIY Ring Toss
Tossed To Us By Tyler
Grade Level: K-5
Individual or multiple people: Multiple People
Paper towel rolls
Markers/ crayons/ paint
Location: A room with enough space or outside
Further instructions or accommodations:
Here is a fun opportunity to make believe you are at the fair or a carnival!
Depending on what resources you have at your disposal your ring toss may come in many different shapes, sizes and will have different unique twists!
One method involves paper towel & TP rolls and a sheet of cardboard.
Tape the various rolls in different positions onto the cardboard and then finish it off with some flashy decorations!
Another variant includes plastic or glass bottles that can be arranged in a box or taped together in a square.
Once assembled it is time to assemble some rings
Rings can be made by cutting sections of rope and generously taping them together. You can even glue the ends together for a cleaner joint. (if you have the patience that is)
You may even be able to find some makeshift rings that you have at home.
Another ring forming method can be made by cutting the center out of paper plates to make a frisbee like shape. Don't forget to decorate!
Have some fun and get tossin’!
Frantic Frisbee Challenge!
Thrown Together By Brendan
Grade Level: K-5
Individual or multiple people: 2+ people
Frisbee or other flying disc
Instructions: Have one person hold a hula hoop five paces away from you. See if you can send the frisbee flying through the hula hoop! Take turns holding the hula hoop and throwing the frisbee, and once you successfully throw the frisbee through the hoop, move the hoop 5 more paces backwards, and repeat! See how many paces away you can throw the frisbee through the hula hoop! This will make a great competition between at least two people.
Further instructions or accommodations: If you have more than two people and more than one hula hoop, you can have people stand next to each other holding the hula hoops so that they line up and then try to throw the frisbee through two hula hoops, three hula hoops, or more!
Water drop art and mazes
Brought To Us By Jen
Grade Level: K-5
Individual or multiple people: Either
Theme: Projects, STEM
Materials: a sheet of paper (thick works best), wax paper, food coloring, a dropper, or a straw that you can use as a dropper, or a really steady hand to pour out a drop of water.
On a sheet of paper, thick paper works best, draw a very simple maze, more like a path from one corner of the paper to the o
ther. Don't make the path too narrow. You can color it in and decorate however you want.
Then, cover that maze with wax paper completely so it is waterproof. Take some water and add food coloring of your choice. Place a drop of water at the start of your maze, and carefully pick up your maze and tilt it to get the water drop too the finish without going out of the boundaries you have drawn.
Wen you're done with your maze you can make some water drop art where you spread wax paper on the floor and put drops of different colors on it. The water drops will swirl and make pretty designs. If you put white paper underneath it that should make the colors "pop" more. When you are done you just wipe away your design.
