Each team must attempt to collect their colors of ball pit balls before the other team collects all of their colors.

Supplies You’ll Need:

1. 6-8 Garbage Cans.

2. 100-200 Ball-pit balls. We bought about 100 on ebay for $10.


Deposit all the ball pit balls in the middle of the field.

Paint a strip on your trash cans to correspond to the color of the ball pit balls

Line 3 trash cans up on one side of the field, and the other three on the other side of the field.

Game Play:

This game consists of a big pile of ball pit balls in the middle of a field. Your group is broken up into two teams, each team is responsible for returning 3 different colors to the corresponding garbage can. For example, Team One must collect Red, Orange and Yellow, while Team Two must collect Purple, Blue and Green.

  • During the first round, the garbage cans will be nicely lined up on their sides.
  • In the second round, the garbage cans will be mixed from one side to the other.
  • The last round, the garbage cans will be carried by volunteers around the field.
