Jack in the Box is this week’s PE Activity of the Week, which focuses on listening to a command and pretending to be jack in a box!
Active Superstars plan, coordinate and prepare fun, energising games for children to participate in during our sports sessions. We like to be as unique as possible and ensure children have fun whilst working hard and learning new skills. Each week we share our favourite ‘PE Activity of the Week’ to give you an insight into our sessions and provide some inspiration for games of your own.
The Object of the Game:
The object of the game is to follow the leader’s commands and jump and squat along – but don’t get caught out!
- Listening skills
- Chose one child to be the leader and the others to stand in a circle around them
- When the leader shouts ‘jack in the box’ the children must all squat down
- The leader then shouts ‘jack out of the box’ and all children must jump up
- The leader repeats these commands as slow or fast as possible to try and catch other children out
Active Superstars offer a wide range of physical activities during the school holidays.
