Newspaper Basketball Game
A Favorite Game
lots of newspapers
bucket for each team
Each team lines up single file by a stack of newspapers.
Place a basket about 15 feet in front of each team.
On 'GO', first scout in line pulls out one sheet of newspaper, crumbles it into a ball, and throws it at the bucket.
If he misses, he retrieves the newspaper ball, returns to the line, and tries again until he makes it. Then, he goes to the end of the line and the next scout tries.
Score a point for each basket scored within the time limit or until a team reaches a set score.
Might have scouts take only two or three shots each turn instead of shooting until they make it.
Could have one large garbage can for the target for all teams.
