Challenge 11 - Target Towel

Target Towel

Get a bath towel and lay it down flat on the floor. Place a throw line about 3 steps away from the towel. Throw a ball from the throw line to aim to hit the towel (the ball doesn't need to stay on the towel). Each time you hit the towel you fold it in half and return to the throw line to throw again. The challenge is how quickly can you fold the towel 5 times and hit the towel after the fifth fold.


Make it harder

  • Move the throw line further away
  • The ball must stay on the towel


Make it easier

  • Move the throw line closer
  • The ball is allowed to hit the floor before hitting the towel


If you would like to share your attempts at each challenge you can ask the grown ups in your household to film you or take a photo of you doing the challenge and then send it in to Mr Thomas at along with your score and possibly a write up about how the challenge went in your household.

Here is my first attempt and I finished in 51 seconds. There were a couple of missed throws as the target got smaller which I think was due to me rushing and forgetting to follow through with my throw correctly. I'll fix that and beat my score! Can you finish quicker?
