1. Paper plates (preferably pink or red)
6. Pom poms or softer balls for IT
a. Number the paper plates and put them out in a pyramid arrangement.
b. Cut out an arrow and heart shape for each straw and glue them on.
c. Have children take turns tossing the “arrows” at the targets.
d. For younger children you may consider using soft toy balls rather than the straw arrows for safety reasons.
e. EXTENSION: let children design their own arrows, similar to designing paper planes to see what flies better.
Children are throwing things, be sure no one is on the side of the targets. Don’t have too many arrows so that you can keep track of them all. Make sure older children do not get too competitive.
