Chinese Ball

Description

This traditional Chinese playground game develops children's ball skills and their concentration - it really keeps them on their toes!

Resources

Ball

Instructions

Children stand around in a circle with a ball as appropriate for the section (such as a basketball, tennis ball).

The ball is thrown quickly around and across the circle. When a child catches the ball, the children on either side must raise one arm - the arm nearest the child with the ball - and hold it in the air until the ball is passed on to another child.

If a child fails to catch the ball, or fails to raise the correct arm when their neighbour catches the ball, or is too slow to pass the ball along, they drop out. When there are only 5 children left in the circle, they are all declared winners, and the game starts again.
