    DRAGON’S TAIL - JUMP THE SOCK any age
    WHAT YOU NEED:

    DROP 21 OR DROP 10 Gr 2-up
    WHAT YOU NEED:
    1 ball
    2 players
    HOW TO PLAY:
    Players stand facing each other. Decide who goes first, second. The first player holds the ball as high as possible, then drops the ball. The other player lets the ball bounce as many times as possible, then the second player tries to catch it.
    Every bounce counts as one point. Everyone, count out loud. Try to get as many points as you can without going over 21 bounces, but you must pick up the ball before it begins to roll.
    If the ball begins to roll the player’s count returns to zero, and s/he earns no points.
    Then switch so the other players have a turn. If you just held the ball and dropped it, you become the catcher.
    Keep playing until someone reaches exactly 21 (or 10, or any other number).
    If you go past 21, on the next turn, you must subtract until you get to 21.
