Hit

Number of Participants Required: 2+
Equipment Needed: Hockey stick, Ball/Puck
Time: 5+

How to Play:

  • Start by pairing children up and giving each pair a balloon which they had to hit to each other
  • If it touched the floor, the sharks would eat it
  • Split the group into two teams and stand them either side of a tennis net (or line)
  • The children then played a volleyball style game using the balloon
  • Adding extra balloons meant nobody was standing still for long
  • As the balloons fall so slowly, it gives the children more of a chance to hit the 'ball', building confidence, and if it does fall on the floor, they don't spend half the lesson chasing balls
