Challenge Description: You have 5 attempts to hit any of the 3 targets when hitting a ball off a batting tee or other suitable raised object or surface.
Scoring: You will receive 1 point each time you hit a target. The maximum score is 5.
Adapt for Space and Equipment: If you don’t have a cricket bat, a ball or a batting tee get creative.

You can use any household objects as your targets.
