Captain ball game
Kids love the outdoors. Playing a game of captain ball is fun and keeps them active. Outdoor activities can help children learn to be a good team player.
Number of players:
Have two teams lined up with the captain of each team standing one metre away from the first person on the team.
To start the game, the captain throws the ball to the first player in the line who then throws the ball back and sits down.
The captain throws the ball to the next player, who throws the ball back and sits down.
The player continues in this way until all players have had a turn.
The last player catches the ball and runs to the captain to replace him.
The new captain now repeats the throwing of the ball to each player.
The first team to complete have every player be the captain wins the game.
