Description

Separate the group into four teams.

Set up a square playing field with cones measuring around 10’-20’. Have the team’s line up on the different sides of the square without entering. You will need a variety of balls including a beach ball. The other balls should be a mix of softer play balls, i.e. softies, gator balls, sensory balls, soft footballs, nothing that would hurt if it hit someone.

The teams will be lined up on the outside of the square. You will give out all the balls except for the beach ball, and tell them that the beach ball is “the poison ball”.

The object of the game is to knock the ‘poison ball’ into an opposing team’s side. The players can not use their bodies in any way to touch the poison ball, nor can they enter the square. They have to throw the other balls at the poison ball to knock it across opposing team’s lines.

The first team to get the poison ball three times loses.

Requirements

Balls of various sizes (enough for most players), beach ball, 4 cones.

The teams will be lined up on the outside of the square. You will give out all the balls except for the beach ball, and tell them that the beach ball is “the poison ball”.
