Derived from English game of Rounders: The English game of rounders is probably where baseball started. This quaint derivation is great for kids.
Two teams, one fielding, one batting. Independent bowler (under arm only). Mark out 3 bases (traffic cones are best). Last base is home. Batting team have to stand on an upturned crate – something that wobbles slightly so it is difficult to maintain balance. Three chances to hit ball. Don’t have to run if they hit it, but must on third ball, or if they fall off. Can stop at bases, but can be “out” if fielder touches base first with ball. One “puddock” scored for each home run. If batter is caught, they are out (not whole team). Continue until all batters are out or can’t make home.
