Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

St. Patrick's Day Coin Toss Fun

The boys were driving me a little nuts the other day with their fighting. We've had a long winter and all the cabin fever and inside days were taking their toll. I pulled out the St. Patrick's Day gold pot, the large black Halloween cauldron and some of the mini pots to form a coin toss game.
I set up the pots and gave them plastic pirate coins to toss (pennies would work really well too). Each boy got 10 coins and whoever threw the most coins into the pots won that round. Later I moved the pots into a straight line and made it more Skeeball style (little pots worth 100 points, gold pot worth 30 points, big black pot worth 10 points). The best thing about this game is that you can move the pots in any configuration you want and assign the points/rules that work best for your kids. :) They seemed to have fun and it kept them busy for awhile!
