Backyard Game
Soccer Around The World


Kids will get a kick out of zigzagging from continent to continent in this race across the globe!


7 soccer balls, 1 soccer goal


Set seven soccer balls across the field in a zigzag pattern to represent the seven continents you find on a world map – North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Antarctica and Australia. Mark a goal at the opposite end of the field.


When you say “GO,” the first player in line runs to the first soccer ball closest to them and attempts to kick it into the goal. If the player scores, they get to travel to the next continent and kick again. If they miss, they run to the back of the line and the next kicker goes. When a player is up to kick again, they start from the last continent they visited.
