1. Mold each pipe cleaner into a circle and twist the joining ends together to hold the circle closed. For a heavier, larger ring (easier to throw), twist multiple pipe cleaners together into a circle to create a larger ring.
2. Give each participant a set of 5 pipe cleaner rings in one color.
3. Set up the paper towel roll (or pop bottle) and begin play.

A diy ring toss with bottles game can also be played using this same concept. Simply set up 5 to 10 pop bottles in a small bunch and have the kids toss their unique colored rings to see how many they can lasso.
This homemade ring toss game is great for parties both indoor and outdoor. It eliminates broken lamps and picture frames since the game uses light pipe cleaners.
Kids aged 1 through 10 can enjoy this homemade ring toss game, but direct supervision is recommended as pipe cleaners can be sharp and dangerous. Keep the sharp ends away from little eyes and mouths and all should be safe!
