Play Everyday

365…ok 366 days of simple, inexpensive and wildly fun 2-year-old play!

Target Tidy

on February 5, 2012

Super Bowl Sunday! Noah and I had planned on attending an Un-Super Non-Bowl Party with friends.  It actually would have been Very Super but as the day unfolded drive times, car naps and b edtimes collided and we just couldn’t make it happen.  I wanted to do something football themed but after browsing Pinterest I came up empty-handed.  Gasp!  Pinterest has never before failed me!  There were some great ideas, just nothing I felt would be great for Noah.  Sometimes I think I rely on Pinterest (or more accurately all my brillant fellow bloggers) too heavily for inspiration though and it didn’t take me too long to come up with something that would be great for Noah and I both.  A football toss with the target landing all his balls back in the ball bin!

  • 2 paper plates
  • Glue
  • Paint stir
  • Markers, stickers, etc. for decorating, optional

I glued the 2 paper plates together to make them sturdier.  We didn’t do any decorating but that might be a fun option the next time.  I cut the center out and taped the paint stir on the back.   Our ball bin has a clever little pocket where a label can be placed.  The paint stir fit in that pocket perfectly and I added some tape at the top.  We were ready to clean up!  Err….I mean play!


Eyes on the TV…he is ALL boy!  He shoots and scores with a bowling ball!
