Angry Birds Toss Game

Throwing bean bags into a container is great for visual motor control, and even better when you have to aim at a specific target, such as toss across or similar game.

I ran across these angry birds dog toys at walmart, and they are the perfect size for throwing at a target. I made a base out of a cardboard box, printed out some angry birds shapes from the internet (I did have to enlarge them first though), and glued the shapes in prime places to make an angry birds game.

    Where do you use the angry bird print outs. It sure looks like a lot of fun I know that this is something my students would enjoy. Thanks for the idea.

    Also at Walmart, they had a boxed “Angry Birds” game. It comes with three rubber birds, about an inch in diameter, a catapault, wooden blocks, and pigs. The kids have to build the pig castle from a picture and then launch the catapault, which requires B/L coordination, finger isolation and visual perception to line it up. You can also add visual tracking and problem solving by making them tell you which side they missed on and then make adjustments. It is probably my best game in my collection now, and the kids absolutely love it!
