This don't-knock-over-the-cans challenge calls for careful aim.

Equipment: 1 playground ball; several empty cans or plastic bottles
Players: 1 or more

How to Play: Stack the cans about 2 feet apart and several feet in front of a garage door or wall. From a starting line several yards away, kids try to roll the ball through the cans. If they succeed, they score two points. If they knock down any cans, they score just one. Add up a 10-round score, then try to top it in the next game.
