This type of boredom buster is my favorite because you can find ways to “level up” the challenge in creative ways. And all you need is a bouncy ball!
Place a bouncy ball in the palm of your right hand. Toss it into the air and bounce it off the palm of your left hand. Bounce it back toward the right hand but have it bounce on the back side of the hand, then bounce it off the back of the left hand—all in one continuous bouncing motion. See how many times in a row you can bounce it back and forth between the palms and backs of your hands.
This unique twist on basketball is sure to bring fun! Use embroidery hoops, diving rings, or even paper plates with the center cut out for the “basket” and set it flat on the table. Then grab one ball per person and have everyone try to pick up the ball between their elbows and shoot to get it to stay inside the hoop!
