Cat and Mouse Game from the US MINT.
Place two coins of the same size, (quarters, nickels, whatever you have) on a flat, smooth surface. Put a third coin of any size in front of them, making sure they all touch. This is the "cat." Place a fourth coin, the "mouse," about a foot away. (You could even add a tail to this coin with a piece of dental floss and tape.)
Make your hand into a fist with the index and middle fingers pointing out. Then tap down quickly on the first two coins with these fingers. The kinetic force will propel the "cat" toward the "mouse." Play with a friend, and see who can get the cat to the mouse with the fewest hits.
