Milk Jug Pass

Game Description: 
A fun throwing and catching game to develop hand-eye coordination!
Try to catch and pass the ball as many times as you can!
Game Rules: 
Prepare the equipment by cutting the bottom off of a 4L milk jug, you can use tape along the bottom edge to make sure there are no sharp edges. Split the children up into pairs and give each child their own jug and their own ball. Demonstrate how to throw and catch the ball using the milk jug and get them to try making throws up in the air and catching their own ball. After they make a few catches tell them to try and make passes and catches to their friends in their pair, they will only need 1 ball in their pair. Have them stand a few steps away from each other and once they get a few catches, tell the children to spread farther apart to make it a little more difficult.
Progression (optional): 
Give each child their own ball and tell them that on the count of 3 you're going to throw them all up in the air and they need to try to catch a different ball from their own.
