A fun team building game that will get the children's hearts and feet racing!
The goal of the game is to land your beanbag in your hula hoop, in order to flip your hoop and reach the finish line before anyone else!
Split the group up into even teams, about 3-5 children per team. If you have a small group each child can be on their own team by themselves. Have the teams begin at a starting line. Give each team one hula hoop, and one beanbag. When you say go, the first child on each team tosses the beanbag, trying to get it to either touch their hula hoop or land inside of it. If the beanbag bounces out, it does not count. If child is successful in their toss, they run to the hula hoop, and with it touching the ground they flip it over, moving it closer to the designated finish line you have marked off. The child then goes and retrieves the beanbag to give it to the next person on their team. This is a race, be sure to encourage the children to run quickly to retrieve their beanbag for the next person on their team, whether they landed it in the hoop or not! The team who gets their hula hoop all the way to the finish line first, wins!
Proper footwear, as the children will be required to sprint quickly. Enough space in the lines for the child to throw.
Move the line closer if it is taking too long for the children to reach it. Get bigger hoops with younger children, to increase their success.
Have the children play a round throwing with their left hand. You can also designate one child on each team to be the retriever. They stand and throw the beanbag back, and then switch that child throughout the round.
