Stand on the first line of masking tape with all your balls beside you. Throw the balls into the buckets or cups.
Qs - How many balls did you get into each bucket? Which bucket was the easiest and hardest to get the ball into?
Extension - Join in the game and have a competition on who can get their balls into all of the buckets first. Can you place a bucket further away and get a ball in?
