What you need


A cone shaped party hat

Scissors

A soft ball

A friend

Instructions


  1. Cut the tip off the party hat to make a hole about 2cm in diameter.
  2. Wear the hat over your face.
  3. Try to play catch with your friend using a soft ball.

Results & explanation

When you’re wearing the hat you can only see with one eye at a time.  Without your normal, two-eyed, binocular vision you can’t judge distances as well and it’s much harder to catch the ball.
