We’re not supposed to toss our food and catch it in our mouths, but some people just can’t stop themselves with grapes. Paul Tavilla says he’s caught a grape from the farthest distance, 327 1/2 feet away. Steve Spalding caught 116 grapes in 3 minutes. But the only official Guinness world record holder is Connor Castleberry, who threw a grape 78 feet high and caught it in his own mouth. If you want to get great at catching grapes, take Paul’s advice: use black grapes because they’re easy to see, and keep your eyes open.

*Wee ones:* If your friend catches 4 grapes in a row and you catch 6 in a row, who caught more?

*Little kids:* If you catch the 1st grape you throw, then the 3rd, then the 5th, what grape do you catch next? *Bonus:* If you can catch 10 grapes per minute, how would you count them up over 4 minutes? Count up by 10s!

*Big kids:* If Steve had caught exactly 1,200 grapes in 1/2 hour, how many would he have caught in 1 hour? *Bonus:* How many did he catch per minute? (Reminder: A whole hour has 60 minutes.)

Answers:*Wee ones:* You caught more!

*Little kids:* The 7th grape. *Bonus:* 10, 20, 30, 40.

*Big kids:* 2,400 grapes in an hour. *Bonus:* 40 grapes per minute, since a 1/2 hour has 30 minutes and 1200/30 = 40.
