Question catch

A mind and body coordination game that can prove to be a comedy challenge

What do you need?
  • A ball

As with any activity, they will need an adult to help them.

  • How many can do this?
  • Will suit what age?
  • How long does the fun last?

This is a great game for grown-ups and children to play together. It’s good fun to watch as players try to catch the ball, as they struggle to answer some basic questions

Step 1
Step 1

Get everyone to stand in a circle with a good even spacing of 2m between each player.

Step 2

To start with, every player has three lives. The aim of the game is to keep hold of your lives as when you’ve lost all three, you are out of the game. Last one in is the winner.

Step 3
Step 3

The first player to go chooses another player, asks him or her a question and then throws them the ball. The question might be for example, ‘how do you spell ‘hot’’ or ‘What is a bird’s bed called?. The chosen player has to try to answer the question and catch the ball at the same time. If they get the question wrong or drop the ball then they lose a life. Lose all three lives and they are out.

Step 4

The game plays on until the last person left in is declared the winner.
