Build a Portable Golf Course
Total Time 2 to 3 hours Ages preschooler

It's hard to resist the appeal of putt-ering around the yard on a weekend afternoon. All it takes to get a quick game underway is a few plastic practice golf balls and the following easy-to-make props.

What you'll need

  • 3-liter plastic soda bottle
  • Colored tape
  • Markers
  • Cardboard
  • Cardboard tubes
  • Duct tape

How to make it

  1. Instant Golf Holes: For each one, trim the bottom off a 3-liter plastic soda bottle, then cut out an arched hole (ours was 3-1/4 inches wide and 4 inches tall) in the base.

  2. Use colored tape and markers to decorate and number the bottle.

  3. Makeshift Clubs: Fold a 3- by 11-1/2-inch piece of cardboard around the bottom of a long, sturdy cardboard tube (ours came from a roll of wrapping paper). Wrap duct tape around the two pieces to secure them together, then wrap the rest of the tube.
