Thanks to Fruit Shoot for sponsoring this post and inspiring my kids imagination to invent this new ball game for kids.
There are only a couple of weeks until schools starts here. We are trying to fight off summer boredom here at my house. We have made up a new ball game for kids using a few simple items you probably already have around the house.
How to Play Scoot Ball (a ball game for kids )
We put together a little ball game for kids and named it scoot ball. First I helped them build an easy paddle using Fruit Shoot bottles for the handles. Take a piece of duct tape and tape two popsicle sticks together. Overlapping about the length of the tape. Wrap the tape tightly around to hold the two sticks together. Next tape the sticks to the paper plate. With a longer piece of duct tape tape the whole thing to the Fruit Shoot bottle. Make sure it is secure. Now you have a paddle for scoot ball the new ball game for kids.
We just used our breakfast table and made a net with two Fruit Shoot bottles and a piece of string. We tried a homemade ping pong table and the little guy was just not coordinated enough to play. So we made up scoot ball. The object this ball game for kids is to scoot the ping pong ball under the string to the opponent without the ball falling off. If the ball falls off, then the other person gets a point. My kids had fun playing this fun ball game for kids.
Fruit Shoot is perfect for packing in lunchboxes with its new no-spill cap. The no spill cap is great for children of all ages. I am especially excited about the no-spill cap for my kindergartner this year. Fruit Shoot has no fructose corn syrup and contains real fruit juice. Which is better than other flavored drink options offered out there. I was super excited to find them under $1 at Kroger this week.
Fruit Shoot is holding a competition where a short video of your child can be featured in a Hollywood-style animated video. You will receive a free bottle of Fruit Shoot when entering the contest. If you buy 6 or more bottles of Fruit Shoot you will receive a Waboba ball.
The ‘Have a Ball Stunt Hunt’ competition is a great demonstration of Fruit Shoot’s commitment to imaginative play and has a reward that is priceless. Here’s how it works:
1. Visit the contest homepage to upload a video of your kids showing off their best tricks, stunts, and super-cool abilities with a Fruit Shoot bottle and any ball. To qualify, please make sure your video is under 30 seconds. Check out the stunt video we have already souped-up for inspiration!
2. Share your video with friends and family and encourage them to vote for your video.
3. Every week, we’ll chose a winning video, give it the full-on Hollywood special effects treatment, and release it on their contest homepage for the world to see! Visit Fruit Shoot website to see the winners each week.
