This is a game I made for an elementary school carnival.

The large circle is made of 1/4 hardboard that came from a salvaged dry erase board. The small circles are made from 1/8 hardboard scraps I had in the shop. They were made on the tablesaw using a fairly crude circle cutting jig.

The large circle is 16” D and the small circles are 5” D. All the pieces are held together for storage by a single bolt and wingnut that runs through the 1/4” center hole in each piece. The pieces will be painted by the PTO members before use in the carnival.

Rules of the game: The player stands over the large circle that is on the ground. The small circles are dropped from waist level or higher onto the large circle. The object is to completly cover the large circle.

Simple, Fun, Easy, Easy to Store!
