Oh Crabs

Game Description: 
A fun way to work on moving.
Kick all the beach balls to the opposing teams side.
Game Rules: 
Begin by dividing the children into two teams spread apart on opposite lines, then give each child a number between 1 and 5. As the leader you will call out one of these numbers and all the children who are that number will become the crabs. The crabs will crab walk to the middle to attempt to kick the beach ball to the other teams side. The children who did not get called are the fish. The fish's job is to try and stop the beach ball from going past their side. For every beach ball the fish let through their side they are rewarded a bean bag. The team with the least amount of bean bags wins!
Adaptations (optional): 
Can be adapted to try other moving techniques. Such as, bear walk or horse galloping.
