How to Play

1.    Ask the children to stand in a line at one end of the play space.
2.    At the other end, place the 3 (or more buckets) upside down. Place a ball underneath one of the buckets and move the buckets around. 
3.    Ask the children to move to the bucket they think the ball is under either by running, hopping, galloping, etc. Reveal the answers and start again.
4.    Next time there is the option to change the movement.

Change it up / Alternatives / Additional Options

-    For children with impairments in flexibility or gross motor skills, encourage them to perform the movements as much as they can, understanding that it may look different to others. 
-    If you have a participant who uses a wheelchair, be intentional around the movements that you select to allow them to participate.
-    If you have a child with another type of disability not mentioned above, they may be able to participate in this activity without adaptations or modifications
