What Is Four Square?
Four Square is a classic kids game to play on any street or driveway.
What You Need:
- Chalk or tape can be used to create the four squares playing area.

How To Play:
The game is played on a square court that is divided into four smaller squares, each labeled one through four. One player stands in each square, with the highest ranked player in the 1 spot, and so forth going down to 4. You bounce the balls among the players, bouncing once in the other person’s square before they can catch it. You can also add additional rules to play during the game, which player 1 is allowed to create. Anyone who violates the rules will be forced to move down in the ranking, or eliminated with another player taking their place inside the square.
