Human Hungry Hungry Hippos

The boys played Human Hungry Hungry Hippos at Scouts and it was too awesome not to share. The boys split into 4 teams and each group took a corner of the arena. Tennis balls were released into the middle of the arena. As you can see in the pictures below, a rope was tied onto a creeper and the "hippo" laid on the creeper with a bucket in his hands. His teammates would push him out into the arena, he'd capture as many balls as possible under his bucket, then get pulled back by his teammates (by the rope). An adult would keep tally of how many balls he had captured, then would push the balls back into the arena. Repeat for 2 minutes. Then another boy had a turn for 2 minutes. After all boys had a turn, scores were tallied.

The kids had a blast!!!
