See the Moving Chapter for more instructions, hints, tips, and ideas.

To play, unwind the string. Hold wood in one hand using the PVC ring. Swing the bead up in the air and try to make it go through the hole. The largest hole is 1 point, middle hole is 2 points, the smallest hole is 3 points. Take turns tossing it 5 times. Add up your score. See how close to a perfect score of 15 you can get!

Here is a variation that is similiar to a Native American Indian game. Take a dowel rod about 1/8" by 5". Drill a hole through both sides of a PVC ring. Tie a 3' string to the PVC ring and one end of the dowel rod. To play the game hold the dowel rod and swing the ring into the air and try to catch it on the dowel rod. Native Americans used a patch of leather with holes in it. It taught them knife handling skills.
