5 Minute Games For Toddlers - Skittles

Here's my first 5 Minute Games For Toddlers - Skittles.  As the winter gets a grip and the weather forces us indoors it's good to have some games that don't take long to make and will entertain a toddler for more than a minute. I thought I'd share games as I make them as even though many are old favourites when you have a bored toddler it's not always easy to think of the obvious. 
This really does take 5 minutes to get ready all you need is a tube and a ball. I used the cardboard tube from wrapping paper and cut it into six pieces. Toilet rolls would be good but you obviously need to actually have them. After we had played for a while we decorated them, just with pens and then with paint and added hair.

Just line them up and hit with a ball. 
Bear loved playing with them, he enjoyed putting them up as much as knocking them down. Older toddlers will love decorating them too.

Any ideas for 5 Minute Games For Toddlers would be appreciated. As we make stuff I'll post the on the blog.
