Flying Chuck

Game Description: 
A fun way for children to learn to throw and catch!
Successfully catch a flying chicken, and accurately throw it back to the leader.
Game Rules: 
Children line up in front of the leader. The leader throws Chuck (the chicken) high in the air and the child catches it, and throws Chuck as high as they can back to the leader. Repeat 2-3 times.
Progression (optional): 
Throw Chuck higher. Further distance apart between leader and children. Throw Chuck to the side so the children have to move to catch him. Children can throw to each other if they are capable.
