Tips to Try 

Set up a goal (a box, two lawn chairs set a few feet apart, etc.) in a safe playing area and practice kicking. 

Set up empty cans from canned foods and try to knock them over by throwing a ball for a Carnival-style game. 

Use empty plastic 2 liter soda bottles as targets for practice kicking.
