How to play

  1. Grab a big, soft ball, a stopwatch, a pen and some masking tape. Write or draw different activities on bits of the masking tape – like star jumps, dancing, skipping or running on the spot – and stick them on the ball.

  2. Stand in a circle, and then start throwing the ball to each other.

  3. When you catch the ball, read the first instruction you see.

  4. Now pass the ball along to someone else and start doing the instruction you read!

  5. Keep doing your activity until the next time you catch the ball – then start your new instruction! Can you keep it up for 10 minutes?
