Throwing Stones

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ




Newspaper, 2 x bucket (or box, or can).


Divide the Joeys into 2 teams (school boys and town boys). Give each Joey 2 pieces of newspaper. These are crumpled into balls. Each team lines up facing each other, some distance apart. Two Joeys from each team stand behind the opposing team. Each pair of Joeys has a bucket (or box, or can). These two have to pick up/catch all the “stones” (paper balls) that their team manages to throw to them, over the heads of the opposing team. The Joeys in the lines can catch as many as they can and throw them back, but not once the stones are behind their line. The game ends when all the stones have been caught (or when time is up). Newspaper, 2 x bucket (or box, or can).
