Get Active: Clap Catch

Friday 3rd August 2018

Great game for developing a range of skills whilst also having lots of fun.

1. To start the game, everyone forms a big circle facing inwards with the leader stood in the middle with a ball.

2. If the leader throws the ball at somebody, then they must clap before they catch it. If they don’t, or if they drop the ball, then they are out of the game and must sit down.

3. You can try and get people out by pretending to throw the ball. If someone claps, thinking the ball is coming to them, then they are out of the game.

4. Start by going around the circle once to get everyone warmed up, then start throwing the ball randomly around the circle – trying to catch people out.

5. Make the game harder by playing it quicker, making the circle smaller or getting the children to clap twice before catching.
