Games for 3 - 5yrs Skittles
This game is also great for rainy days. It helps your pre-schooler with their hand eye coordination as well as learning to take turns if you are playing with him / her.
You will need some empty small plastic drinks bottles and a tennis ball.
Rinse out the drinks bottles, put a little tap water in them and do the lid up tightly.
The water is just to give them a little weight. You can always use a few drops of food colouring and some glitter for prettier skittles see here.
Line them up against a wall and get your little one to roll the ball at the bottles to try to knock them down.
As they get older you can set up the bottles like a real life skittles set up and get them to stand a way back to make the game more of a challenge.
Skills: hand eye coordination,taking turns
