Rock, Paper, Scissors, HOP

Description of Activity

This activity is ideal for larger groups (10+) to play inside a gymnasium or on a sports field. First, the game needs to be set by placing hula hoops on the ground, one behind the other, to create a long line of hula hoops. Then the group needs to be divided into two evenly teams. Each team will go to one side on the hula hoop line. To begin the game, one person from each team must hop in the hula hoop until they reach the other person from the other side. (The hoping can be changed to anything like high knees,
burpees, jumping jacks, etc.) Once they meet, they must play a game of rock paper scissors and whoever wins can continue hopping to the other end. Whoever lost the game of rock paper scissors must have someone on their team start hoping to meet the winner. The objective of the game is to make it all the way to the other side. Once a player from either team makes it to the other side, their team wins.
