Scooper Ball

Scooper BallCatch is a great game no matter what but this is the game for those who haven't quite mastered a ball and mitt yet.

Easy as cutting up some old milk jugs and taping up a pair of socks or some rags into a ball (you could use a wiffle ball too though the sock ball is softer on the head and doesn't bounce out as easily).

And if that doesn't float your boat I'm smitten with these Star Wars rings--now that is a fun idea!

Thank you for that awesome idea! My boys will love it. They are at a great age for it.

We have enjoyed trying out some of your ideas this summer. The construction paper castle was a big hit.

Fun!! And when they tire of it, the bottles can be recycled.

Now that is my sort of kids game - cheap and easy, and doesn't matter if they lose them or break them :)

Thanks!

I'd never thought of using milk jugs this way, until my son came home from kindergarten and told me about how his PE teacher did this. It's so cool and simple. We love our milk jug ball scoops!

Such a great and fun idea!!!! I can't wait to make a set to keep for when the kiddos come to visit!

I love your blog by the way and look forward to my first visit to Alaska in just over two weeks!! Your blog has given me lots of insight into the culture and things to do in AK.

Thanks so much for the great idea! I linked to this on my weekly roundup (post is here. I'm working my way through your blogging e-book, too - such a wealth of information! I'm going to have to go back and reread it a number of times to soak it all in. Really appreciate your taking the time to put it together!
