In this game, you build camaraderie and physical skills. To avoid becoming the “weakest link” and breaking the chain, players have to work their strength and balance.
To begin, place several cones onto the field (in a row – spaced apart).
One player begins by kicking the ball down the field (and back) in between and around the cones. When they get back to the starting line, they link arms with the second participant and repeat the course. The game continues until all children are linked together and have completed the course. Ask them to navigate the turns without breaking the chain. If they do, they must start again.
Encourage them to talk to each other to decide how they can do the course without “breaking the chain”.
Variation: If you’d like to add other “obstacles or challenges” to the course, feel free.
