Instructions 
Divide the colony into two teams; give each Beaver a wide drinking straw. Assign a ‘home base' to each team at either end of the room. Your Beavers must get down on their hands and knees and attempt to blow a ping-pong ball into the other team's home base.
If you have a large colony, you could form several pairs of teams. Make sure you have a referee for each on-going game.
Is a ping-pong ball is too light? Try using crumpled foil formed into a ball of the same size.
