Table Top Ring Toss
This game was a very versatile game, for it could be played in the parlour in the winter and on the lawn in the spring and summer. Played with larger hoops and a steel rod outside, our indoor version is played with rope hoops and a small wooden peg on a stand. This game is a perfect example of how many early games stressed the development of good hand /eye coordination among children.
