One or two Soft foam balls at least 8 inches diameter

Game Description

Don't know the origin, but it is a firm favourite with Beavers, Cubs and Scouts in several Groups I have worked with. Leaders (or older scouts) take balls, throwing them to hit the 'victims' who must sit down if hit. Throwers are not allowed to move once they are holding a ball.

If any victim already sitting is hit again, they shout ALL UP, and the throwers have to start again. When a number of victims have already sat down, having two balls is not the advantage it might seem.
