Game: Hula Hoop Hurrah!

Objective: Be the first team to have all players pass through the hula hoop without breaking the chain.

Materials: Hula hoops, one per team of 6-9 players

How to Play: Divide children into equally sized teams of 6-9 each.  Instruct the team to form a circle facing inward and holding hands. Give a hula hoop to each team and instruct each team to find a starting point for the hula hoop by placing it around two linked arms of players anywhere in the circle.On the signal “go,” players must attempt to pass through the hula hoop and get it all the way around the circle back to the starting point. No one can break the chain at any time, they must remain holding the hands of the players on each side of them. The first team to get the hula hoop all the way around the circle is the winner! Play multiple rounds.
