  3. the receiving team tries to retrieve and kick to return the balls as quickly as possible.

Modifications to make the activity easier:

  • use a larger, lighter ball (i.e., beach ball)
  • have the child stop the ball with their foot before kicking it

Modifications to make the activity harder:
