Home Made Toys ~ Can Drop Game: Age 1 Year Up

Can Drop Game

You will need:

Coffee Can (or other large can)


Robyn's Nest Wash out empty can or other container with a lid. (Caution ** sharp edges are likely with a coffee can)

Robyn's Nest Cut a small circle in plastic lid and then place back onto top of can. (Glue on lids of coffee can or containers with sharp edges)

Robyn's Nest Use any clothespins or objects large enough to put into hole on top of can. To make things interesting you can paint the clothespins to teach color identification or decorate the can with designs!

Robyn's Nest Another idea is to construct the can with larger hole and have older children take turns first kneeling, then standing with the can on the floor.

Robyn's Nest See if he/she can drop the clothespins into the can. Gradually increase height (safely) for a really competitive game!


About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.
