Hit the Penny


  • 1 penny (or nickle) per player plus 1
  • A piece of bamboo or dowel that is 12 – 18 inches
  • If playing inside
    • flag stand (or Christmas tree stand)
    • skipping rope or string to mark a circle


Drive the bamboo into the ground or put it in the stand.  Mark a circle around the pole of approximately a 1 m diameter.  Balance one coin on top of the pole.

To play:

Girls take turns trying to knock the pole coin off with their coin.  A point is only scored if the coin lands outside the circle.
