Reaction game

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


A game to test cub reactions, ability, ingenuity and balance




Children get into groups of 2 or 3 with a ball. Place the ball in the middle of the group
The leader shouts commands to the children which they follow e.g. touch your head, touch your toes, jump on one foot etc.
As soon as the leader shouts "ball", the children need to grab the ball as quick as they can. The person who gets the ball first wins.
This game tests how fast the children react to the commands.
