Cricket and dance have more in common than you might think! Fancy footwork is vital in both and we've got a brilliant activity that brings the two together.This is a catching challenge with a twist - encouraging children to explore different throwing and catching techniques. Children should aim to throw the ball up high and show us their very best moves and shapes and then catch the ball.
