Fast Hands

Here is a fast an activity that little ones love.  It requires almost no equipment and can be done in limited space.

Children partner up and sit cross-legged facing each other.  Place a bean bag between them.  I give 3 cues:

“middle”   bean bag is placed in the middle

“ready”   children place both hands behind their back

“go”   grab for bean bag and see who gets it first

Return bag to middle and repeat.  Older kids can play in push-up position to give a challenge.  If you don’t have bean bags, any handy object will do.  This is a good wake-up games for classrooms when students need a break!
