Connect 4 Relay

Game Description: 
A big and active version of the classic game Connect 4!
Try to get 4 bean bags in a row before your opponent does!
Game Rules: 
Place the hoops in 6x5 pattern on the floor and split the children into 2 teams on the opposite end of the playing area. Each team will have 15 bean bags of the same color. One at a time, a member from each team will run to the hoops and place a bean bag in one of the hoops, then run back to their team and high five the next person to go. A bean bag can only be placed in the second row of hoops if there is already a bean bag in the first row of hoops (to hold it up). The same applies to the 3rd, 4th and 5th rows. The game is a relay race to see if one of the teams can successfully place 4 bean bags in a row either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. If all 30 bean bags have been placed and it is a draw, reset the board and play again to break the tie! You can play a best of 7 series or mix and match the teams for more rounds!
Adaptations (optional): 
Try skipping, galloping, hopping or other movements instead of running!
