Can you imagine what a happier world we would all live in if adults got to go outside and play every day?  Recently I had the chance to try out a new toy called RingStix, an outdoor game for kids and also adults.

The game that only takes a couple of minutes to learn.  However, it took me and a friend quite a while to perfect our skills and throw good tosses consistently.

You have two sticks per player and two rings.  Put the sticks through a ring and hold the sticks to look like a pair of scissors.  Aim, quickly pull them apart and watch your partner try to catch your toss!

RingStix can be played pretty much wherever you can find some open space.  We’ve been playing it in the yard, but you can take it to the beach to play, too!  You don’t have to worry about the rings sinking because they’ll float in the water.

It’s a great way to get the family outside to play together if you have older kids.  They suggest that kids be at least 10 years old to play.

My friend and I had a blast playing the other day, but neither of us are very athletic so it was a big achievement when we caught two in a row.  Then we had some more athletic folks ask to play and they caught on right away.  It made us look pretty bad that the other two were consistently catching tosses.  But everyone had fun with this game no matter your skill level, and that’s what’s important!

You may also end up with a side sword fight or two for those with fun imaginations…

      We would play this at the beach. Our whole family goes Memorial Day weekend – brothers, sisters-in-law, cousins, grandparents. We would have so much fun with it on the beach.
