Number of players: 10 or more

Supplies: playground ball

Action:

The players are divided into two equal teams. The game begins when the ball is given to a player and he throws it to another player on his team. The object of the game is for the ball to be tossed among players of each team without the other team intercepting the ball. Every time the ball is caught, the members of that team clap their hands together once, and sometimes stamps their feet.
