Group Juggling

Graphic from WeJuggle2
Group Juggling will test any player's focus and coordination. Best with groups of 4 or more. Players should be old enough to toss and catch consistently. You will need one tennis ball for each player.

Players stand in a circle. Start with one ball. First player tosses ball across circle. Catching player tosses to different player (not first player) and so forth until all in circle have caught and received ball one time each. Important: players must remember who they threw to and who threw to them to establish a pattern. Repeat this pattern until you are satisfied everyone knows it. Once they are comfortable with the pattern, add a second ball.  Continue until there is one ball in play for the number of players in the circle. For example, if you have 8 players in the circle, at the end of this activity there should be eight balls in play.
