Here’s What You’ll Need for the Human Ring Toss Game:

  • 3 inflatable pool rings per team – our rings are called 36″, but they really only measure 31″x31″. The inside ring is about 16″. I bought 6 – (3 for each team of 2 teams)

That’s seriously it! – FYI – they make giant pool rings for adults! I’ll provide a link to Amazon below. So fun!

 

 

 

Here are my top Amazon Picks for this Human Ring Toss Game:

The 2 on the left are about 4 ft. across – for adults. The 2 on the left are 36″ and 38″ floats – ages 9+.

Instructions: Here’s how you play the Human Ring Toss Game

  • Pick your teams and divide the rings evenly between teams
  • Decide on  distance away from the person to ring that’s challenging, but doable – we settled on about 6 ft. away
  • To ensure that there is no cheating – It might be a good idea to place a marker down for the person that you’re going to ring  and for the people throwing rings to stand on or behind
  • When you’re ready, start ringing your human!
  • *The human has to stand on their mark, but can bend at the waist and point arms up in the direction of the pool ring to make it easier to ring them – to make it more challenging for older kids and adults you can disregard this variation 
  • Rings  count as 2 points for a full ring (I think that around the neck counts) and 1 point for a pool ring that is leaning on on touching the target/human
  • First team to get to 21 points wins!

Have Fun!

*This would also make a fun Minute to Win it Game. Just see who can toss all 3 rings in less than a minute and ring their team mate with all 3 rings! 

Or, you could always play tackle. My kids didn’t waste anytime ringing themselves as a target while the other kids ran as fast as they could to knock them down. They played tackle for what seemed like forever.

    What size rings were used?

    • The pool ring bag says 36″ pool ring. They really only measure 31″x 31″ and are for ages 9+.
      The inner circle is about 16″ across. If you can find one with a slightly larger inner circle – maybe a 38″ ring, it would fit over the kids even better. With the 36″, the kids did some helping out in getting it over their waist. If you can’t no worries. The 16 inch inner circle fits over heads perfectly, and the kids can pull them down over their waist, from there.

  2. I’m going to try this for our VBS this summer. Theme is Baptism and it might work to show being “covered with Rightousness” That might be a stretch but pretty fun to see if we can cover the kids with the rings!
