Here's a fun home-made game you can play in the winter - perfect for the Winter Olympics too!
You will need:
Cocktail sticks or toothpicks
Playdough or sticky tack
To play: a small, light ball (or round sweet) and drinking straws
To make the flags, fold a strip of paper about 4cm (1 1/2 inches) wide in half.
Cut triangles along the length of paper so that they have a straight edge on the fold and will open into diamonds.
Glue the two layers of each triangle together with a cocktail stick in the fold.
A cocktail stick flag
Set up the course by standing up the flags in blobs of playdough or sticky tack. Arrange them in pairs to form "gates".
Blow the ball from one side of the table to another, passing through as many gates as possible!
