Ball Between Legs



Game Description

The Cubs form a circle with legs apart and with their feet touching their neighbours feet. They place one hand behind their back. A ball (a light, soft sponge ball is ideal) is thrown into the circle and the Cubs use their free hand to try and knock the ball between the legs of the other players. They are allowed to defend themselves with their free hand.

If the ball passes through someones legs, that person is out. They come out of the circle and the circle moves in to close the gap so that the game can continue. The first Cubs who are out can help to retrieve the ball, and once enough Cubs are out, a second game can be started to keep them occupied. As the number of Cubs in the circle gets fewer the game becomes more frenetic.
