Cornucopia Toss

ages 2-6


Supplies

Large cornucopia; plastic fruit and vegetables; masking tape

Activity Detail

Draw and cut out a large cornucopia, and then tape it on the floor. Using masking tape, tape a line on the floor a short distance away from the cornucopia. Have your child try to toss pieces of plastic fruit and vegetables (we use the ones from our plastic picnic set) into the cornucopia. This is great for working on motor skills and hand-eye coordination!

The cornucopia you're making is simply a large cone. You can modify it to have a larger opening for smaller children, or for more of a challenge, a smaller opening for older children. I tried it with newspaper and it works best if you triple or quadruple the rolled layers to add strength to your cone. Otherwise it's a bit flimsy.

Would the plastic pieces bounce? Maybe using flat objects would work better - cardboard fruit cut-outs, perhaps.
