We started a Dreambox trial a week ago, and one of the games in the carnival area is skeeball. I've always loved skeeball - the real one, that is. I googled for skeeball games, and found this one. After we had played it together about 100 times, I suggested we try to make a real one sometime. "Sometime" in the mind of a two year old turned out to be "right now." So, we improvised and came up with this contraption.
One ramp (the lid from our Step 2 train/car table), leaned against the couch:
Plus three "1, 2, 3" round bins from Ikea:
= 1 happy skeeballer (ok, 2 of us).
We played with this for at least 1/2 hour, with much laughter and silly antics. I'm guessing it will resurface tomorrow.
