I liked that cotton ball idea -- especially since our local super market has a
give away on cotton balls -- every time you go in they give you a new bag. I n
eed a use for them.
Another one we have used is an airplane contest. It takes various forms depend
ing on the setting.
In one format, the boy makes a paper plane and simply throws for distance. In
another, the throw is for accuracy. Two choices here: Into a tub or through a
hula hoop hanging from a tree limb.
Sometimes we want to wear them out so we have the den make a plane and throw it
. They then advance to where it landed and throw again. One time we sent them
around the ball field, another time we sent them around the block. One Cubber
told me that he had done it as a golf game, i.e., how many throws to get it in
to the hole. They used #10 tin cans (rock in bottom) setting on the ground, as
The Minnesota version of accuracy is to park a convertible on the pitcher's mou
nd and throw planes from the upper deck. The one that lands in the car wins it
! Maybe that's a bit too much for your event but it does draw people to the Me
trodome, and raise a lot of money for charity.
Have a great time with your games.
