Chase Chuck

Game Description: 
A fun chase game to get kids running and engaged!
Try to collect the rubber chicken "Chuck" and bring him back home.
Game Rules: 
While holding the rubber chicken (named Chuck), or another stuffed animal, tell the children that they are working together as a team to chase you, get Chuck, and bring him back to his home (where they are currently sitting). They win the game when somebody catches or grabs Chuck and they all sit down together at Chucks home. While carrying Chuck, have the children chase you all over the playing area. Hold Chuck up high in the air to make them jump to try and grab him and hold him low on the ground so they have to bend over as well. If you have other leaders you can toss Chuck in between yourselves and keep the kids chasing. Eventually let one of the kids catch or grab Chuck by throwing him to a child to catch or holding him low enough to let someone grab him. Encourage everyone to run to Chuck's home and sit down fast!
Saftey Considerations: 
Tell the children to keep their heads up and look where they are running.
