Gentleness Toss  (Outdoor Game)

Materials: One water balloon for every two students

How to Play: Have students form two lines and face each other. Give each student in the first line a water balloon.  They must toss the water balloon to their partner opposite them in the second line.  Then the first line takes a step backwards.  Continue to toss balloons back and forth, spreading the lines further apart each time, until there is a winner. Talk about how the water balloon must be gently handled.

Note: If weather is not agreeable, consider swapping this game with a game from next week’s lesson on Gentleness.
