Week beginning 11th January
Sock snowballs – click here to see Mr Potter complete the challenge
You will need:
On the chair, stick your target to the top of the backrest, place your saucepan/bowl on the seat and stand your bottle under the chair. Then, from the front of your chair, take small steps (the number of your age) away from the chair. Stand in this position (facing the chair) and take one of your sock balls. Using an underarm throw, bowl your sock ball to try to knock down the bottle. If you are unsuccessful, use your next sockball to try again. If you were successful, then take your next sock ball and (from the same position) use an underarm throw to bowl the sockball into the saucepan. If you miss then try again with your final sockball. If you get it in the saucepan then with your final sockball use an overarm throw to try to hit your paper target.
If you knock the bottle over it is 1 point
If you knock the bottle over and get it in the saucepan then it is 2 points.
And if you manage to do all 3 with just 3 sockballs then it is 3 points.
