Game: Heart Beat Relay




Heart for each child with instruction written on one side and a heart-shaped chocolate taped on the other.

Instructions might include:

  • Hop like a bunny
  • walk like a crab
  • bear walk
  • skip
  • walk backwards
  • log roll
  • etc.

How To Play:

  1. Children divide into two teams.
  2. Put the hearts at the end of the room in two piles.
  3. On your mark the first child on each team runs to the pile, takes a heart and does what the heart says, while returning to their team, then sits down.
  4. The next team member then runs to the pile...etc.
  5. he first team to be sitting down wins.

Note that for Spark-aged children, you will likely need an adult at the heart instruction end of the relay race to read out the instructions for the girls.
