Grade Level: 2-6
Equipment: 2 Pool Noodles, 2 Foam balls
Game Description: Play tag, while throwing and catching, and scoring points, and switching roles – great mixture of ideas into a single game! The taggers tag with the pool noodles. The freers (who hold the foam balls) aren’t allowed to move with the ball, but aim to throw the ball to those who have been tagged. If caught, a point is earned for both players. The one who caught the ball is now a freer. Sound like a fun idea? Give it a go and see how it goes! Thanks John Pass for this game idea.


Grade Level: 3-8
Equipment: Foam balls, pins, nets
Game Description: This game incorporates lots of different skills into an action-packed soccerish type game. Players dribble the balls around (soccer-style) and can choose to knock over pins for points, or score goals on the other team for points. OR players can “convert” the ball up into their hands. Once in hand, players can pivot, pass, or bowl the ball at pins to earn points. Try it out in your PE class as something new and exciting to mix many sports skills into 1 fantastic game. Thanks to Sarah @SMS_PhysEd for this game idea.


Grade Level: K-8
Equipment: 4 foam balls
Game Description: This is a special type of dodgeball game with official rules, refs, and the whole show! With sportsmanship being the number 1 rule, teams will compete in an epic battle to be the last ones standing. Great game incorporating lots of skills. Popular in Australia, kids love this one and get nice and sweaty. There’s talk of some major tournament play and school-wide fun. Try it out!

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.

Equipment: Pennies, Bingo Chips, Other..

Simple way to get everyone active.
