the ball in your writing hand,
try throwing it back to the
other hand

Hot Potato
You will need at least two people to play this one.
Grab a ball and throw and catch it between the
people playing. The ball is hot though, so make
sure you don’t hold onto it for very long.
Challenge 1:
Get everyone to throw and catch
with only one hand
Challenge 2:
Get everyone to stand on one leg
and balance
Challenge 3:
Each person has to say the name of
the person they are throwing to before they throw
the ball
Dance Party
Turn on your favourite music and have a disco
party in your lounge room, garage or bedroom. You
could try some of these games too:
Freeze: Get one person to stop the music
during a song and everyone else has to
freeze (no moving!) on the spot.
Make up a dance routine
to a song and perform it
to a parent, grandparent,
carer or sibling
Mini Workout
Create an exercise circuit in your house or backyard. There are lots of
exercise you can do using just your body. You could try:
• Lunges
: Keep your upper body straight, and step forward with your
right foot first and then lower your hips until both your knees are bent.
Step your right foot back and try with your left foot.
• Squats
: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and slowly lower your
bottom just like you are about to sit down. Straighten your body
upright and repeat 15 times.
• Star Jumps
: Stand with your feet together and arms by your side.
Jump slightly in the air bringing your legs away from each other and
your hands to above your head. In a quick motion, bring your legs and
arms back to the starting position.
