Magic Ball

Sit campers in the circle with a ball to be passed around the circle. Come up with a few magic words to indicate what the ball is going to run into as they are passing it. Repeat and practice the magic words in a particular order a few times. Come up with what the “magic” ball is going to turn into (ex. a sticky ball), say the magic words and all of a sudden the ordinary recess ball turns into a magic ball. Pick up the ball and pass it in a sticky motion… hands sticking to the sides of the ball. Have each student take a turn with the magic ball. Once the ball gets back to you place it back in the center of the circle and come up with a new magic ball (ex. a heavy ball, an apple, a slippery ball, floating ball, etc.).
