Game description

For this game, you do not need more than a tennis ball and few old food cans. This cans should be placed on an elevated area. A table or wall. If you have enough cans, you could build a pyramid. Next, highlight a starting line a few meter away. The objective now is to shoot as many as possible cans down. Needless to say, the greater the distance the harder the game. If you have a group where the age difference is great, you can draw more start lines depending on the age of the children. This way everybody gets a fair go. This game promotes eye-hand coordination and skills.


The winner is the participant who shoots down the most cans. Only those cans which fall over or down to ground are counted.
