Frog in the Cauldron

How to play

Grab your buckets and fill it with yucky items in slime or sludge, and then line up a table or lay on the ground. The students can then take it in turns to throw a frog (or a ball) and try and get it in the bucket. When they get it in there they have to put their hand in the slime, and maybe even put extra prizes in there too. This is great for practicing throwing skills.
