Torpedo Relay in the River
There is nothing that children need more than a physical education class to break up their day and release some energy. In the past, going to gym class may have included playing kickball or dodgeball after running a few laps. However, there have been countless variations and new games invented since then. Although there is no shortage of options, we love that the supplies required remain relatively minimal. You will want to make sure to have some staples on hand like *****, hula-hoops, bean bags, and parachutes.
Elementary PE games that are both physically and mentally stimulating are our favorites. Grab some Hula-Hoops and a few scarves or bean bags and get ready to watch the fun! Learn more: S&S Blog
