|Living on a lake, I actually own one of these|
Some ideas for potential catching tools - the crazier, the better!
- shopping bags
- gift bags
- back packs
- hats - the crazier, the better!
- tennis bags
- empty cardboard boxes
- nets - fishing, butterfly, hair, vegetable
- pots/pans, colanders, strainers, Tupperware, other kitchen items
- Christmas stockings
They can also contribute their own ideas for things to use - shirt, hood, hat, etc. Once everyone has a catching tool, Coach just tosses balls and they try to catch them with their catching tool of choice. You will probably need to have several rounds so they can rotate catching tools. First to three points wins, for example. Take lots of pictures - this should be a hoot.
Play with a partner, taking turns tossing underhand. First team to X points wins.
