Family Fun


Hoop It Up

Before cabin-fever sets in – or to shake it off – get the family off the couch and into the fresh air with this fun, heart-pounding race that requires agility and speed.

Hoop-up race:

Gather:
• 10 hula-hoops, inner tubes, tires, or circles of some sort of about 2½ - 3 feet
   in diameter. You can also draw chalk circles if that’s easier.

Arrange:
• Place the hoops flat on the ground in two parallel lines.

Play:

• Time each person as they run up one row of circles and down the other. They must
   land both feet in each circle before moving on.  
• Take three turns per player.
• The fastest time wins.
      • Give smaller kids a lead-time so they don’t feel defeated
• Want to make it harder? Try these variations:
      • Each player must get through the maze using two-footed jumps
      • Players must hop on one leg into each circle (or may alternate legs as they
        progress through the maze)
