Roller Ball

Have all players hold the chute stretched tightly. Place a large ball near the edge. The object of this game is to try to make the ball roll around the edge of the chute. To do this someone starts the ball rolling. As it comes towards you, you lower the edge you are holding, and as it goes past you raise your edge. When all the players do this smoothly, a wave is created that goes round the edge, pushing the ball in a steady circle. It cannot be done without concentration and co-operation!

Tip: This game also needs practice and co-operation. When mastered it can be a lot of fun! When you’ve done this try speeding up – or change direction.  Variation: Roll the ball at different speeds or change direction.
