What You’ll Need
- Bottle cap
- Sidewalk chalk
- Small bouncy ball
What to Do
Put a bottle cap on the line between two squares on a slate or cement sidewalk, or draw two connected squares on asphalt with sidewalk chalk.
- Players face each other and step one square away from the bottle cap. There should be two squares between the players.
- Players take turns tossing the ball at the cap, trying to make it move. The first person to push the cap past the other player’s square wins.
Extend the Fun
Younger kids: Change it up by throwing the ball underhand or by rolling it. How does that change the way the cap moves?
Older kids: Instead of a small bouncy ball, what else could you use to move the cap? What do you think would happen if you used a large bouncy ball?
