Passing Practice

A good quarterback needs accurate aim. Help future Tom Bradys perfect theirs with this fun passing challenge.

What you'll need

  • 1 water-resistant tarp with grommets (ours was 5 1/2 by 7 1/2 feet)
  • Ruler
  • Permanent marker
  • Scissors
  • Rope
  • Footballs
  • Colored duct tape

How to play

  1. First, spread the tarp out on the ground and use a ruler and a marker to measure and mark a number of targets in varying sizes. (We covered our tarp with 10-, 12-, and 15-inch squares and diamonds surrounding an 18-inch center square.)

  2. Cut out the holes, then line the edges of each one with colored duct tape. Use the marker to add a point value (5, 10, 25, and so on) below or next to each target, assigning higher values to smaller holes.

  3. To hang the tarp, tie a length of rope to each of the corner grommets, then tie each of the ropes to a stable structure, such as a fence, a tree, or a swing set.

  4. To practice their passing, aspiring quarterbacks can take turns throwing footballs (try kid-size footballs for smaller hands) through the holes from an agreed-upon distance, earning points for each successful pass. The first player to 100 (or another score of your choosing) wins.
