A steal the beanbag game for two teams that encourages teamwork and thought


3 Buckets, 5 tennis balls or bean bags


Two teams numbered off 1- 10 etc but facing 1 - 10, 2 - 9 , 3- 8 etc.
and each team sits cross legged:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
bucket bucket bucket
10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

When you call a number out they have to run and touch their bucket then run to the middle bucket (which starts with 5 tennis balls in)to take ONE tennis ball and place it in their bucket.
They keep going till the first team gets THREE balls in their bucket. After each number replace all
5 balls in the middle bucket. The secret is knowing when to steal a ball from the the other teams bucket. If the teams think their Cub should steal a ball from the other team they need to shout 'steal, steal, steal'.
