Instructions of the Challenge
Materials: Ball of your choice. Friend or family member. Open space outside.
Steps: First, choose a ball and friend or family member.
Second, go to your open space outside. Stand facing each other. If you have a volleyball net, use that.
Third, while standing in front of your friend, make sure you have some distance between the two of you … not too far apart though!
Finally, whom ever has the ball first will start by hitting the ball in the air towards the other person and they are to hit the ball back to you without catching the ball or having the ball hit the ground. The goal is to keep the ball in the air.
See how many times you and your friend hit the ball without stopping. Have fun and challenge yourself.
