Fun Game from Stanley (Newman)

Hi, here is a game that Tom named “QuarterBall” when he played. I call it, “hit the quarter”.
Material needed: One bouncy ball, one quarter
Playing surface: Driveway, sidewalk, or any somewhat flat surface
Objective: Try to hit the quarter with the bouncy ball. One point for a hit, three points if the quarter flips over. Play to 11 or 21.
Skills: Hand-eye coordination, reflex movement
Set-up: Layout out two rectangular boxes on the surface you are using. The two boxes should be adjoining each other. The easiest size would be both rectangles being 4’ x 4’. You can adjust the box size
according to the skill level. Place a quarter in the middle of the two rectangles, heads up to start. Each player stands behind the outmost point of the rectangle and throws the ball at the
quarter from this position. Use chalk to make the boxes on the driveway or sidewalk. Be creative if playing indoors.
