Zoo

Game Description: 
A fun warm up game where you can act like zoo animals!
Objective: 
Walk around like a zoo animal, but don't get caught by the zookeeper!
Game Rules: 
Scatter hoops all over the playing area and tell the children that they are going to walk like a bunch of different zoo animals, maybe a giraffe or elephant etc. While they are walking around the hoops the leader will say ZOO! This means that the zookeeper, the leader, is coming and all the animals need to run and find a hoop, or get into their cage, before the zookeeper catches them. After they all get to a hoop, say another animal and repeat the process.
Saftey Considerations: 
Tell children to look where they are running.
Adaptations (optional): 
With older children you can remove one or two hoops per round, and if the zookeeper tags any of the animals then that child will join in as a zookeeper!
