A rainy day doesn’t mean you have to spend hours plopped in front of the TV. Nothing can rain on our parade during the summer! Sometimes Mother Nature just forces us to take our fun inside.
Our Recess Enhancement Program coaches have you covered. Round up the kids and head to a gym for a game of Circle Fireball.
Who: Grades 3 to 5
Time: 15 minutes +
One to four soft gator balls
Players form a circle
HOW TO PLAY:
- Form a circle with one player in the middle.
- Everyone will try to hit the player in the middle by rolling the ball.
- The player in the middle tries to avoid getting hit by the ball.
- When hit, the player in the middle switches places with the person who rolled the ball.
- Restart the game.
Have more than one player in the middle.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION TIP:
Have players high-five when switching places.
Use fewer balls so players are not running after them.
PLAY: REP IT OUT
EASY: Use more than one ball.
MEDIUM: Use more than four balls.
HARD: Middle player can only stand on one foot.
