Electric Fence

Game Description: 
Fast paced relay race
To jump over the fence as fast as you can.
Game Rules: 
Have the children line up in one big line behind a starting point (designate a start and finish line). Have two leaders hold a skipping rope or a Chinese jump rope (electric fence) tight in between the starting line and finish line. Have each kid jump/leap/hop over the fence and run to the other side. If someone touches the electric fence when going over it, everyone has to start again. Time them to see how fast they can get over the fence. Next time you play, see if the group can beat their previous time.
Saftey Considerations: 
Put the fence at a height that's doable for the whole group to prevent injuries. Can
Adaptations (optional): 
Switch up ways to go over the fence- leap, hop, jump, crawl, crab walk, etc.
Progression (optional): 
Can make the fence higher after each round- depending on how long you play it.
