Pitching pennies

Pitching pennies is a cool game to develop the child’s hand-eye coordination. Similar to beer pong, the game is for the entire family.


You will need:

1. Pennies or other small currency coins
2. Plastic or paper drinking cups (large size)

How to:

1. Each child gets five coins. A cup is placed on a table or a chair in front of them.
2. Ask the child to take ‘x’ steps away from the cup, where ‘x’ is his or her age. Adults can move five steps farther than the children to throw the pennies.
3. The child has to toss the coins, one at a time, into the cup.
4. The child who puts in most coins in five chances wins.

Quick tip:

You can replace coins with marbles or even ping pong balls.
