Sidewalk 7 Up!

Materials

A bouncy ball (tennis ball or small rubber ball) and a flat paved area.

How to play

  1. Find a safe place to play where you can bounce a ball
  2. Decide as a family if the goal is to try each challenge or complete each challenge, or have a family challenge where the first person tries sevens and the next person tries sixes and so on.
    • 7 - Sevens: Bounce the ball against the ground seven times
    • 6 - Sixes: Throw the ball up in the air and catch it. Repeat six times
    • 5 - Fives: Bounce the ball on the ground five times. Throw it hard enough so it bounces up over your head. Catch on the way down. Repeat five times.
    • 4 - Fours: Throw the ball up, let bounce, then catch. Repeat four times.
    • 3 - Threes: Bounce the ball, then hit it down again before catching. Repeat three times.
    • 2 - Twos: Bounce the ball under your leg, two times.
    • 1 - Onesies: Throw the ball up in the air, spin around and catch it before it hits the ground.

Want more challenge? Try adding a clap or snap, knee lift or some other move between each throw.

These skills are only suggestions. Be creative and come up with your own challenges.
