Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)
Rubber Band Shoot-Out
Equipment needed: 10 or more rubber bands, shoe box (or other target), masking tape
How many rubber bands can you shoot into the target in one minute?
Race against the clock or against another person
Set up a target (shoebox, tissue box, basket) with the opening facing toward you
Use masking tape to make a shooting line on the floor
On “GO” competitors have one minute to shoot as many rubber bands into the target as possible. Time stops when all rubber bands are in the target or one minute expires. Person to get all rubber bands into the target in the shortest amount of time, or the most in after one minute, is the winner
Equipment needed: 1 balloon per competitor, 5 plastic cups per competitor
Stand cups in a line on a table right side up
On “GO,” competitors will inflate their balloon up INSIDE a cup and, without using their hands, move it to the other side of the table. Cup must be placed back down on the table without using hands. Repeat this process until all cups are stacked on the other side. If a cup falls or a competitor uses their hands, the cup will be placed back at the beginning. The first person to stack all of their cups wins.
Congrats to the students at Potomac Grade School who participated in their 3rd annual PGS5K!
