Connecting/Organizing Game of the Day

Ping Pong Table Soccer

4 non-breakable cups (for goal markers)
1 ping pong ball
a table

Blow the ping pong ball in between the two cups to score. Using hands is illegal until it falls off the table. There is calming input from the blowing, visual input from the tracking, as well as almost constant opprotunities for great eye contact. This is a game that "levels the playing field" - a child is just as likely to be great at it as an adult and can provide lots of opprotunities for praise, giggles and just the opprotunity to flex and try something new.
