Milk Jug Catch is a great game to play indoors or outdoors. It's especially fun for kids because they make the scoops themselves.

What You'll Need:

  • Two clean plastic milk jugs
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Permanent markers
  • Soft foam ball or plastic ball

Step 1: With an adult's help, cut the bottom off two clean plastic milk jugs as shown to make a scoop. (For an easy game, use gallon jugs. To make the game more challenging, use quart jugs.) Keep the caps on the jugs.

Step 2: Decorate the plastic scoops with permanent markers.

To play the game, first pick a partner and each take a scoop. Toss a ball to your partner, who will catch it in the scoop. Then your partner throws the ball back to you to catch in your scoop.

To make the game harder, throw the ball when it is still in the scoop. Use a soft foam ball to play the game inside and a plastic ball to play outside.
