  • Take turns playing your way through your course.
  • Save your obstacles for the next rainy day.

Ideas for golf course

  • For a tunnel, cut out the bottom of an empty oatmeal box, and place the box on its side.
  • To make a house, turn a shoe box upside down and cut out an entrance from one end, and the exit from the other end.
  • Fold a piece of cardboard in half and set it up like a tent for the ball to go through.
  • Place two or three frisbees on the floor to form a curved fairway for the ball to go through.
  • Make a ramp by scoring (run one point of the scissors in a straight line without cutting all the way through) a piece of cardboard twice.  Bend slightly at each score mark to create a upside, flat, and downside to your ramp.  Put some books under the center section for support.
  • For a straight fairway, use two rows of building blocks.
  • Make a sandtrap from a hula hoop.
  • For a pipe use paper and tape it.
  • Put a chair or stool in the center of the room for the ball to go under.
