Aim of Scarf Toss Challenge
The Scarf Toss Challenge aims to get all your players moving about in a room and to catch a falling scarf. This is a game that requires hand-eye coordination and teamwork, although you’ll also find competitive playing to be common among groups.
Group Size and Age
Scarf Toss Challenge is a great group game to play between 2 to 10 players. The game is best played when you have an even number of players as it has to be played in pairs. More players are always welcome, although you will need a large room for everyone to run about.
It’s a game that can be played by anyone aged 6 and up, but younger children should be supervised by adults to avoid getting injured.
Preparation and Materials Needed
Here’s what you’ll have to prepare if you’re looking to play Scarf Toss Challenge as a group:
- A scarf (or napkin or whatever object that can be suitable for you) for every player. For instance, if you have 6 players, then you’ll need to have 6 scarves.
- A large room for your players to run around.
How to play Scarf Toss Challenge
To play Scarf Toss Challenge, you’ll first have to separate your players into teams of 2. Be sure to space out your players, especially if you have several teams playing simultaneously. You’ll want to provide enough space for everyone to run about. Once you have your players in teams, you can then begin to play Scarf Toss Challenge.
Step 1: Provide each player with a scarf, preferably of different colors. Stand each player on opposing sides of their space and have them face each other.
Step 2: Have your players countdown from 3 and throw the scarf upwards at 1. The players must then run to the opposite side and catch the scarf in the air. They must catch the scarf before it hits the ground.
Step 3: The player that successfully catches the scarf wins the round. You can opt to keep score if you want to play the game competitively or keep going until either player is too tired to keep up.
