Count throws to each other
How to: Practise counting when you’re throwing the ball to each other. Try different ways of counting to mix things up a little. Start by counting in twos (2, 4, 6…) and then have a go at counting in fives (5, 10, 15…) and tens (10, 20, 30…).
Keep the score playing goalie
How to: Make goalposts with your jumpers. Take it in turns to go in goals. For every ball you get in add a point, and for every ball you miss subtract a point. Encourage them to keep score throughout the game.
Have a go at the keepy-uppy game
How to: Take turns at keepy-uppies down the park. For everyone you kick add ten points and for every time you drop the ball subtract five points. Ask them to keep the score while you play.
