This is a great game for the kids to play outside and burn off some extra energy. You can play it with as many people as you like, as long as they can catch the ball and keep it off “piggy in the middle”!
What you need:
- a ball
- open space
Number of players:
Place two of the children about 10 metres apart and the third child in the middle – they are the “piggy in the middle”.
The two players on the outside throw the ball to each other while the one in the middle tries to catch it.
If the ball is dropped, any of the three players can recover it.
If the person in the middle catches or recovers the ball, the person who was the last to throw is now the “piggy in the middle”.
