Games

Soccer is played all over the world. In most countries it is called football. You can use almost any ball that you can kick. You can make a goal using chairs or other items found at home. You can even make a table version and use a marble and only your pinkie fingers to make a goal.

Around the World Basketball – This is easy to play with or without a basketball and hoop. You can use a laundry basket and any ball if necessary. Around the World is a basketball game that tests accuracy when shooting. Mark off 5-6 spots around your basket. You must get all the way around by making a basket at each spot to win. You have 2 chances at each spot. If you miss a shot you may choose to stay there and try again on your next turn or you may take a chance to make the 2nd shot. If you miss the 2nd shot, however, you must start over at the beginning for your next turn.
