Looking for an easy and fun outdoor game your kids can play on the sidewalk? This bottle cap game will keep them entertained for hours. It’s portable and easy to play!

What You'll Need

What to Do

  1. Players face each other and step one square away from the bottle cap. There should be two squares between the players.

  2. Players take turns tossing the ball at the cap, trying to make it move. The first person to push the cap past the other player’s square wins.

Extend the Fun

Younger kids: Change it up by throwing the ball underhand or by rolling it. How does that change the way the cap moves?

Older kids: Instead of a small bouncy ball, what else could you use to move the cap? What do you think would happen if you used a large bouncy ball?
