Stinky Feets – Review grab (yes) vs. scoop (no). With a central bucket, scatter at least two socks per child around the playing floor. Upon go, shoeless players begin from any point in a circle about 5 meters away from the central bucket and hop on one leg to grab socks with the non-hopping foot. Kids retrieve and deliver socks to the bucket by using only one-legged hops. Legs and feet (hopping or grabbing) may be switched only at the bucket. Alternately, play can also be arranged as team races to separate buckets using one sock per team.

Don’t Touch the Floor – Use a variety of obstacles set up in a large continuous circle. These obstacles have to be climbed/swung over, through, or over under (think “Koala challenge”) without touching the floor. After someone touches the floor, everyone comes into the middle and performs 5 reps of a movement, eg, squats, mountain climbers, burpees.
