Hit the Bucket Game
tin bucket to stand on.
18 inch long dowel or stick.
tennis ball or small rubber ball.
This game is fun to play during free time and does not need to have scoring.
Turn the bucket upside down and one scout stands on the bucket while holding the dowel as a bat.
All other scouts try to hit the bucket with the ball while the scout on top tries to deflect the ball with his stick.
If a scout hits the bucket, then he gets to be on top.
If the scout on top falls off, then the scout that last threw the ball gets to be on top.
The ball must be thrown from the spot where it is picked up after the last throw and/or deflection.
