Looking for a way to have some fun inside? Help keep kids stay active indoors with Asphalt Green's Recess Enhancement Program's (REP) game Four Corners! Here’s how to play: 


Four Corners

Who: Grades K-5

Players: 2+

Time: 10+ minutes

Where: Any space indoors  

Equipment: None


How to Play

  • Instruct players to pick a corner to start from. One person will stand in the middle and be the caller. 
  • Players must move to another corner before the caller counts down from 10 with their eyes closed. 
  • Keeping his or her eyes closed, the caller will choose a corner. The players in that corner will do five jumping jacks. 
  • If a player did not make it to a corner before the countdown ended, he or she will do jumping jacks too. 
  • If the caller picks an empty corner, he or she will do jumping jacks. 

Game Tip

Not enough corners? Pick four designated spots or items in your room that players can head to. Make sure the caller knows where those spots are so he or she can point to the appropriate area. 

Conflict-Resolution Tip

Use Rock-Paper-Scissors to solve disagreements.
