Skill Challenge: Netball!

Challenge yourself, and your friends, to see who can ‘Tap the balloon and drive’.

You will need:

1 of the following; Balloon, Ball, rolled up socks, scrunched up paper


If you have some balloons then great, if not any ball will do (or alternative - see above). With one hand on the balloon attempt to keep it in the air whilst moving to various obstacles. Taking the balloon from the middle and taping it with control, so to keep it close as the video demonstration.

To make it;

Easier – go closer with your obstacles or even try and use a bigger balloon.
Harder – go further away and maybe even add more obstacles.
Inclusive – try it seated or stood still and if you haven’t a balloon to keep up then use any type of ball but allow it to bounce once before tapping.

How many taps of the balloon can you do in 60 seconds?
See how far can you get your obstacles without losing control of the balloon?
Measure your distance in metres and centimetres using a tape measure. How many obstacles can you add?

Watch the video demonstration below!
