Bucket Ball Team Challenge

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Throw balls or beanbags into buckets - different buckets / balls can have different point values or just count up the number in the buckets - teams compete


Buckets (different sizes) Balls/beanbags.


Divide the section into teams, and line the teams up behind a line. Place a number of buckets at varying distances from the line, giving each bucket a different point value.

Give each team a few bean bags/balls - it works best with different colour balls - and get them to take it in turns aiming for a bucket. Depending on the group, you could decide whether balls that bounce out of the bucket count or not.

Tally up each team's points to find the winning team.

To add some variety, you could do different size balls as well, also with different point values.
