Game description

For this game, you will need a smooth wall or any other vertical surface. (Blackboard, door, etc. will do). Now, using a bouncing ball, the ball is thrown from a 4-5m distance, in a way, so that the ball bounces once on the ground then to the wall and when it bounces off from here, the objective is to catch the ball with one’s hands.


Option 1: There is a certain area which the ball is not supposed to touch. Option 2: The bouncing ball is not allowed to touch the ground but has to bounce off the ball and then the candidate tries to catch it. Option 3: Play it as a team game. Kids pair up in teams of twos. The first kid throws the ball; the other one catches it. For the next round, the positions are changed.


Everyone gets 10 attempts. For every ball you catch, you score one point.
