Grade Level: K-3
Equipment: Pool noodles or dodgeballs (red & blue)
Game Description: This is a simple tag game idea: The tagger (carrying the blue noodle) goes around freezing the players into ice statues. The freer (carrying the red noodle) goes around melting the ice statues back into the game. Try it out as a quick warmup game! Thanks to @commandokiddz on Twitter.


Grade Level: 1-6
Equipment: Cones, empty drink bottle, rubber chickens
Game Description: Spin The Bottle until it lands on players who become taggers. Then it’s a spree until everyone’s tagged and back around the circle. Spin again and go again! And again and again..


Grade Level: K-6
Equipment: 16 cones, pool noodles
Game Description: The students are Helicopters, flying from Helipad to Helipad trying to avoid the taggers who tag with pool noodles. Pretty simple idea, but lots of fun so try it out and enjoy!


Grade Level: 1-6
Equipment: Hula hoops, pool noodles, music
Game Description: This is a dancefloor tag game where taggers tag the players with pool noodles. Once tagged, the players then must move onto a podium (hula-hoop) and do some dancing. They are free to leave the podium once another player who isn’t tagged goes over and shows them the “secret dance move”!


Grade Level: 5-8
Equipment: Tennis ball, wall to throw against
Game Description: A version of the popular recess game. Anywhere from 3-10 players can play this game. It’s a series of throws and catches against a wall with the purpose of getting others out and becoming the last one left! There are many versions of this game, but this one makes sure players aren’t throwing the ball at other players! Lots of fun and a great way to PLAY. Go out and do something active at recess, instead of standing around – treat your body right with a good game of wall ball.


Grade Level: K-6
Equipment: Pennies, Bingo Chips, Other..
Game Description: Once upon a time in a large grassy field, the teacher threw 100′s of pennies in all directions in the grass. The students were then given 5 minutes to hunt out and find as many of those pennies. See which team or individual collects the most pennies before the time runs out! Simple warm-up. Simple way to get everyone active.


Grade Level: 1-5
Equipment: Pool Noodles
Game Description: Most of the players are the butterflies who try to avoid the bees by running away from them. The bees are the taggers (obviously) – choose 2 or 3 of them. The bees each have a pool noodle, their stinger, to tag with. When a butterfly is tagged, she must freeze still until 2 other butterflies who weren’t tagged can link arms and bring the tagged player to a safe zone in the middle. Once in there, count to 5, and then back in the game.


Grade Level: 4-8
Equipment: 3 balls, Hula hoop, cones
Game Description: Triple ball is like a mini version of Kickball. With 3 balls. Kicking and fielding positions are played, and there’s no shortage of activity. Small groups can set themselves all throughout the field and PLAY!


Grade Level: 2-8
Equipment: None
Game Description: This is a great warm-up game; it can be used in fitness, dance, stretching, or even just making goofy moves. Students form a circle around a leader who has 20 seconds to perform an action. The students must mimic the action, and then it’s someone else’s turn to be the leader. That’s it, that’s all. Simple and effective.


Grade Level: 2-8
Equipment: Poly spots (lilly pads)
Game Description: This is a teambuilding game where students take turns trying to find their way through the maze of lilly pads and get to the end. But with every wrong move, they must head to the back of the line and give someone else a chance. It’s great for memory-practice, communication, and team activity. Create fun and challenging mazes, switch up the leaders, and give it a go!
