This game can be played with any sort of throwing material. It could be balls, mini bean bags or YoYo Balloons*. Find three receptacles, buckets, plastic containers, old tyres and place them strategically in a row.
Then mark them with a sign saying how many points each bucket is worth.
Give each child 5 balloons that they can throw with the aim of getting them inside the bucket. At the end of their turn they can add up their points. The winner is the one who gets the most points.
*The YoYo Balloon is a small latex balloon with 20 mls of water inside. It has a rubber string attached and bounces up and down just like a yoyo. When inflated to 7-8 cm they are tough enough to land on firm surfaces many times over. However, if over inflated they may pop if they come into contact with sharp surfaces i.e. grass.
