Four Square – A simple game that requires little more than a ball and some space, four square has many variations. The simplest is to divide an area up into four squares and have a child stand on the corner of the square. The ball must be bounced in an opposing square. The object is to pass the ball without letting it drop. This game teaches dexterity, social skills, and strategy.
