One of the best things about two-supply game challenges is that they can start as just FIVE MINUTES of family time (easy entry-level commitment for family members who don’t feel they have enough time/desire for family games) but they almost always keep everyone engaged and playing together for MUCH longer! And it doesn’t take much prep. Just grab some empty toilet paper rolls (or most of these activities would work with brand-new toilet paper rolls as well!) and a bouncy ball or two and try one of these five boredom busters!
For this easy family activity, all you need is an empty paper-towel roll and some Ping-Pong balls or bouncy balls. Simply cut nine 1" strips and arrange them into a 3x3 grid. You can glue or tape them together for younger players, or leave them loose for a more interesting game if they move around. Then take turns bouncing a ball across the table to see if you can land it in one of the circles.
If you have chopsticks and empty toilet paper rolls, then you’re on your way to 60 minutes of family fun with just 1–2 minutes of setup for these fling flyers combined with a fun target practice! Enjoy TP fling flyers indoor or outdoors for lots of family fun! Games like this are accessible—and fun!—for all ages, from toddler to adults.
