Resources Mentioned in the Episode
Search Amazon for 'Tennis Balls' to find all sorts of colors for more visual appeal.
One Tennis Ball - This is a FUNdoing Blog post with 8 activities you can do with one tennis ball. It includes: Toss-A-Name Game and Don't Touch Me (mentioned in the show).
7-Up - Here's a write up at the Training Wheels Blog
Snowball Pick-N-Choose - Another FUNdoing Blog post. Change out the gear to Tennis Balls and Buckets when you have the room to store everything.
Insanity - This one is described in Episode #72 (you just need to add some hula-hoops).
Grouping - You can number and letter 26 tennis balls and use them to create groups.
Building Words - Use 26 letters (A to Z). Hand out all the vowels and then let the remainder of the group pick consonants (if you have a smaller group, everyone can pick up two tennis balls). Challenge the group to get everyone into a word - three or more letters long.
Obstacle Field (a.k.a., traditionally know as 'Mine Field') Use the tennis balls as obstacles. You'll need a long activity rope (about 50-feet). Scatter the tennis balls around inside a big rope circle. Then pair up players. One sighted player, staying outside the circle, verbally guides an unsighted player, staying inside the circle, across the circle without touching any of the tennis balls (or other people inside the circle).
Stop-N-Go - Three tennis balls, Red, Yellow and Green. Used for frontloading and processing experiences. The link goes to a description at the Training Wheels store.
