Materials:
Whiffle Balls (any balls you have around the house will work too)
Buckets
Balloons

We played two different races. For the first one, hit the balloon up then put a ball in the bucket.  Keep repeating the pattern until all your balls are in the bucket.  Then catch the balloon to finish. Don’t let the balloon hit the ground. 

For the second one, hit the balloon up and then place all the balls in the bucket.  Last catch the balloon to finish.  Don’t let the balloon hit the ground. 

We all had fun playing each other in these two races! Check out the video!
