Basket Toss Games!

 

Around the Islands Basket Toss
You will need:

One basketball hoop or 5 gallon bucket.
1 raffia hula skirt
1 ball (basketball or playground ball)
Chalk or paper cut outs in the shape of the Hawaiian Islands

Set up: Tie a grass hula skirt around a basketball hoop or 5 gallon bucket. If you will be playing this game on a paved surface use chalk to draw the outline of the 7 Hawaiian Islands in a horse shoe shape around the basket/bucket. If you will be playing the game in a grassy area lay out paper cut outs in the shape of the Hawaiian Islands in a horse shoe shape around the basket/bucket. For an extra added touch paint the ball brown with three black ovals like a coconut.

To play: Each player starts at one end of the Hawaiian Islands and takes a turn tossing the ball into the basket/bucket. If a player gets a basket then they get to move on to the next island and take another shot. If a basket is missed then it is the next players turn. The first player to make it around all 7 islands wins!

 

Hula Around the Islands Basket Toss
You will need:
One basketball hoop or 5 gallon bucket
1 raffia hula skirt
1 ball (basketball or playground ball)
Chalk or paper cut outs in the shape of the Hawaiian Islands

Set up: Tie a grass hula skirt around a basketball hoop or 5 gallon bucket. If you will be playing this game on a paved surface use chalk to draw the outline of the 7 Hawaiian Islands in a horse shoe shape around the basket/bucket. If you will be playing the game in a grassy area lay out paper cut outs in the shape of the Hawaiian Islands in a horse shoe shape around the basket/bucket. For an extra added touch paint the ball brown with three black ovals like a coconut.

To play: This game is played similar to the Around the Islands Basket Toss game but is a bit more challenging. Each player starts at one end of the Hawaiian Islands. Before taking a turn shooting the ball into the basket/bucket the first player makes up a hula move (a simple hip, hand, or foot movement). If the ball goes in the basket/bucket then the player stays in the game, if they miss they have to sit out until the next game. The second play then does the hula move the first player made up and adds their own hula move to the end before taking their shot. Once each person has gone then everyone who made the 1st basket moves onto the 2nd island. Each player again adds a new hula move before taking their shot. Those who make each basket continue on to each island. The players who make it to the 7th island and make the shot are the winners and by the end of the game the players will have made up their own hula dance! It is good to have Hawaiian music on in the background during this game to get everyone in the hula dancing move.
