Chinese Jackstone – A Great Game to Build Skills

This is a great game. Easy to make. I’m going to try it in one of my higher level classes.  This is a great game to teach eye hand skills, speed, concentration and quickness. It is similar to American Jacks but has so many more steps.  I love games from other countries.  So Cool.

For younger kids (5 to 7 years) I am going to break it into the following steps.

  1. Start with parent tossing the black bag into the child’s open hands from about 5 foot away.  When a catch is made, the child can reach over and get one of the other bags
  2. Catch the black bag  with one hand and then get a 2nd bag
  3. Say “Go” and then the child has to get the 2nd bag while you are tossing the first
  4. Child has to toss the black bag up himself and catch it with the same hand. When a catch is made, the child can reach over and get one of the other bags
  5. Now the child should be ready for level one in Chinese Jackstone
