Here’s something to let kiddos practice their coordination. Again nothing too complicated and can be made in under 40 minutes with your kiddo helping out.

How to play? All kiddo has to do is hit the ball and get it into the mouth of the Hungry Tiger as many times as possible. Somewhat like kiddy golf. Remember to give a lot leeway for 3-year-olds.

To make the Tiger, cut up any cardboard box. Retain the original flap on 1 end of the box if possible (if not just tape on another piece of cardboard like what i’d done below). Attach on a tail so that kiddo can pull down with ease.

Since the Tiger is made of cardboard, it’s really quite light and may not stay in place when the ball comes rolling in/ it gets hit by an incoming skewed ball. Hence place a discernible weight on the flap to hold Tiger down.

Tiger’s mouth is made with another flap but it has 1 end tape with a 20 cent coin so that it stays down all the time. Just ensure that the flap has enough clearance for an incoming ball.

Of course, dress up the box by getting kiddo to draw/cut-paste Tiger parts.
