Hoop Elimination

Game Description: 
A fun co-operative game for cool down.
Develop target throwing skills.
Game Rules: 
Leader sets up the playing area, one side is where hula hoops will be spread out. At the other side, divide children into mini teams of 4-6 children in each. Place bean bags where you want the children to throw from. On go, the first child from each mini team will race to the middle to grab a beanbag and throw it into a hoop, once thrown they race back to their line to send the next child in line. If the beanbag lands in or touches the hoop, that hoop is eliminated. At the end of the round, remove any hoop that has a beanbag in it or touching it. This game works best if you give the group a goal to start, tell them even though they are all on mini teams they are all apart of one big team together. Activity continues until all hoops have been eliminated.
Progression (optional): 
Get the children to try different throwing techniques (i.e., overhand, underhand, etc.)
