Materials: 2-4 play yard balls

  1. Have each group of 10-15 form a big circle
  2. Pick a kid in each circle to be the starter and hand him/her a ball
  3. When the whistle blows he/she runs around the circle holding the ball until he/she gets back to their original spot and quickly passes the ball to the person next to him/her
  4. The next person repeats until each kid has done this and the ball ends up back at the starter
  5. Make it a competition among all of the circles and play it a few times – the kids can cheer on their team and have fun
