Bunnies and Bulllfrogs

Game Description: 
A fun warm up game that involves bunnies and bullfrogs chasing each other!
Catch opposing animal to make them join your animal group.
Game Rules: 
Divide players into 2 groups (bunnies and bullfrogs). Have groups lie opposite each other, head to head on center line. If leader calls 'bullfrogs,' bullfrogs get up and jump back to their swamp (end line) while the bunnies get up and jump after them (& vice versa if leader calls 'bunnies'). If a bunny tags a bullfrog before the bullfrog reaches their swamp, the bullfrog becomes a bunny (and vice versa).
Saftey Considerations: 
Give younger children additional space when lying head to head.
Adaptations (optional): 
Different animals/locomotion (skip, hop, gallop, run, crawl)
Progression (optional): 
Leader could surprise by calling 'bears' or 'birds,' if children rise on a false name they change sides.
