Activity of the week

Try Clap Clap*. How many catches can you make in 30 seconds? Try 5 more times to beat your score.

You can play this game on your own, you just need a beanbag or a ball. Practice throwing the beanbag or ball up into the air and catching it. Then try throwing it up really high and county how many times you can clap your hands together before you catch it. Challenge yourself: try to clap your hands behind your back and continue to throw and catch. When you catch the ball again, you can stand back up and continue.
