So, grab a washing basket, bucket or box, some rolled up pairs of socks, a pen and paper.

Decide where the throw line will be, then grab the socks, stand behind the line and then see how many you can throw into the basket in 30 seconds. Depending on how fast you are and how many pairs of socks you have, you might need to quickly retrieve the socks, run back to the throw line and carry on for the 30 seconds .

Make a note of how many socks hit the target in that time for each member of the household. Then, using that data, draw a bar chart showing each person’s score.
