This one would be great for a group of school age children. Have them sit in a circle and one begins by tossing the ball to another kid. Whoever catches it answers the question closest to their right thumb. It's a great ice-breaker.
The Saran Wrap/tape ball game! Layers and layers of trinkets and goodness. First person with the ball starts unwrapping while the person on their right rolls dice trying to roll doubles. Once doubles are rolled the ball is passed to the next player and begins again. You get to keep the treasures you unwrap. There is usually a fun trinket in the center of the ball.
