DIY Indoor Mini Golf

I have to say, the weather for most of the summer holidays has been pretty good. Today however was the first day where it was really gloomy and almost misty. Don’t get me wrong I love these types of days, but none of the children really felt like venturing outside in it. Which kind of worked out perfectly for us to try our own DIY indoor mini golf course.

Make sure you follow my activities board for more ideas, and don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Ball
  • Child’s umbrella
  • Duplo
  • Books
  • Toys
  • Paper plates or paper cups
  • Scissors
  • Tape

You will need a “hole” to putt into. You could either use cups lying on their sides, or paper cups with a hole cut into them. Or, like us, you could use a paper plate. I turned them into cones, then cut a hole in the side big enough for a golf ball to go in.

You can literally use anything to make your own DIY indoor mini golf. I was originally going to just use Duplo, but soon expanded to use any (and all) toys in the playroom. We used books as ramps and as tunnels. Boats became hurdles to get around, and Duplo became narrow passageways for the ball to pass through. We even used BB in his jumparoo as our moving obstacle.

As we didn’t have any golf clubs at hand to play with we used one of YC’s umbrellas. The handle made a perfect club to hit the ball with.

When it came to playing we took it in turns to complete a hole before the next person tried.  Just like in the real game we did keep score of how many hits it took us to complete a hole.

I was really surprised at how long this game kept us all busy; I think in total it was about 3 hours! Each of us had a go at making the course. EC was really into it and started adding penalties if we touched certain parts of the course. Now that they have had a go with our own DIY indoor mini golf, they really want to try a proper one. Better start looking for one nearby.
