What are we doing? Getting all the ping pong balls out of the Kleenex box in under a minute.
Where should we do it? Indoors or outdoors in a space large enough to move around
What do we need? String or tape, Ping Pong balls (8) and Kleenex box (or box of similar size). If you do not have ping pong balls, you can use marshmallows, pom poms, etc.
How should we set-up? Make sure your space is clear of obstacles. Place all the balls in the in the Kleenex box, poke two small holes in the box one on each side of the box. Then loop the string through the box and tie it around your waist with the opening facing the ceiling and placed just above your Gluteus Maximus (your butt)!
