For a spin on the traditional game of marbles, try this giant marbles game for an outdoor game the whole family will enjoy.
Number of players:
Collect as many balls as you can (soccer, beach ball, basketball etc).
Make a large circle with rope on grass or chalk on concrete.
Place all the balls into the circle and spread them out a little.
Players use one ball as the shooter (a heavier basketball or soccer ball).
Standing four metres away from the centre of the circle, players take turns rolling their shooter at the balls inside the circle, to try and knock as many of them as they can outside the circle.
If a player knocks balls outside of the circle, he keeps them and gets to have another turn.
When the circle is empty, the player with the most balls wins.
