Two students each put a knee-high nylon stocking over their head that has a tennis ball tied in the toe. The students face each other and begin to swing their heads so that the tennis ball spins in a circular motion. The object of the game is to get your tennis balls to intertwine with each other and then pull your opponents stocking of their head before you get yours pulled off. You can have pairs of students compete in a mini tournament to become the “Master Ninja.” A great way to add to the fun is to play “Kung Fu Fighting” off the soundtrack from Beverly Hills Ninja.
[Ed. Note: of course you’ll want to try and make sure no one gets hit in the face with a tennis ball. As a thought, perhaps a couple of rolled up socks could provide enough weight to work as well??]
