paper plates, glue/tape, modelling clay, tinfoil


Note: You must always have an adult with you whenever you play this game. Make sure no one is within the throwing area.
Organise an ancient Greek Olympics tournament and try these sports:

Discus/Shot Put: Take two paper plates and glue or tape them together all around the edges to make the ‘discus’. You can add a small amount of sand or modelling clay between the plates to give it extra weight. Alternatively, you can make a ‘shot’ by squeezing a ball of aluminium foil together. Fling the discus, or throw the shot, as far as you can.

Chariot Racing: In teams of three, two people form the ‘chariot’ and carry the third person.
