There is no shortage of viral internet challenges, but what’s special about this one is it’s for your kids. And trust us, you’ll want to use this one to wear them out.

The Hula Hoop Lasso Challenge was started by Raising Dragons, a site dedicated to “raising strong, smart, amazing kids.” Andrea, a mother of 4 boys, started blogging about creative and smart ways to entertain your kids, while also teaching them about science, math, and other important things in a fun way.

“I’m always looking for fun ways to entertain the kids outdoors when the weather is nice and this Hula Hoop Lasso Challenge is the perfect game to keep all my kids engaged and moving!”

How does it work?

Andrea states it’s super simple, and we agree. What you’ll need is a few balls, hula hoops, and string. Tie the string to each hula hoop and set out the balls around the yard, within “tossing” distance.

How to play

Each child is given a hula hoop lasso and tosses it toward each ball, capturing it. Once “snagged” they can reel it toward themselves. And voila! The Hula Hoop Lasso Challenge.

Here a quick video!

But what about the “challenge” part?

Easy. You can make this game competitive by having each child try to capture as many balls as possible. They can even play on teams to see which one captures the balls the fastest!

This easy-to-set-up game is great for birthday activities or playdates. It’s even great for kids games at picnics. You could even offer prizes to the winners.

This is bound to make the summer head out with a bang!
