PE Activity Idea #50 - "Rob the Nest"

Updated: Dec 10, 2023


This is a fun activity to teach moving with various balls. Can be plated with almost every sport!


  • Multiple balls (Soccer, tennis, AFL, basketball)

  • 4 hoops

  • Cones for playing area

  • Bibs or sashes


  • Place 4 hoops in corners of a square area (basketball area or coned area 20x20m)

  • Divide all the balls up evenly and place them in the hoop

  • Divide group into 4 teams and allocate each one to a corner


  1. The aim of the game is to have as many balls in your hoop at the end of the time

  2. Everyone must run around trying to 'steal' balls from other groups and put them into your own

  3. You can defend your hoop but can't touch anyone else

  4. You must move the ball in the correct manner. For example, soccer balls must be dibbled with feet and basketballs must be dribbled with hands. You can defend and tackle opponents using the relevant skills - tackling with feet for soccer ball, defending basketball etc)

  5. The winning team is the one with the most balls in their hoop at the end of nominated time!

Make it easier:

  • Have just one type of ball

  • Have plenty of balls

  • Say no defending

  • Have a long time limit

Making harder:

  • Incorporate multiple balls and required skills

  • Have fewer balls

  • Allow defending

  • Have a short time limit
