How To Play Sock Hockey
Sponge ball or other small ball, 2 newspaper whacking sticks, 2 chairs.
Line up 2 teams against opposite walls. Number them all off so each team has a set of matching numbers. Make sure there is a chair at either end of the playing hall to use as the goal, and set up the ball and the 2 newspaper sticks in the middle. Designate each team a goal to aim for.
Then have a leader call out a random number. If it is '4' then the 2 players with the number 4 run into the middle and grab a newspaper stick and have to hit the sponge ball into their goal to win a point for their team. If 2 players have been playing against each other for too long without scoring, feel free to call out a new number and the players will have to swap.
Get the team members who are sitting on the sidelines to chant loudly and come up with team raps!
