Boys + balls. Kids + play. This is an easy way to make this happen, every day!
This classic is also a family classic party game and if you follow me, below, I’ll share how we personalised this game and will share ways we’ve learned to vary it and to play it with different groups, indoors and outdoors, and with a span of ages, throughout the years.
– Each player gets 3 balls, 3 tosses.
– Have the player stand in the designated position, indicated by the tape, and have the player start tossing. Once a player has tossed 3 times, the next player steps up to play.
– Add scores.
– Player with highest score, wins.
We numbered each containers and kept track of scores. Smaller opening equalled high score, larger opening, made lower scores. The containers with smaller openings were also placed further away, giving balls that landed in these containers high scores.
– Ping Pong and Whiffle Balls work well for an older group due to the fact that they bounce very easily and make the game more difficult.
– You may play by tossing the ball or by having it bounce once to bounce into the container.
– Nerf and sponge balls work great with larger containers and younger kids.
