The Scouts form a circle with legs apart and with their feet touching their neighbours feet. They place
one hand behind their back. A ball (a light, soft sponge ball is ideal) is thrown into the circle and the
Scouts use their free hand to try and knock the ball between the legs of the other players. They are
allowed to defend themselves with their free hand. If the ball passes through some ones legs, that
person is out. They come out of the circle and the circle moves in to close the gap so that the game can
continue. The first Scout who are out can help to retrieve the ball, and once enough Scouts are out, a
second game can be started to keep them occupied. As the number of Scouts in the circle gets fewer the
game becomes more frenetic.
