The Bean Bag Run is this week’s ‘PE Activity of the Week’, an intense, energising game that focuses on running and balance.
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 will 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 this running, coordination game is for children to run to the bean bags laid out in front of them, one at a time. The first child to collect all their bean bags the fastest will be crowned winner.
- Running technique
For this energising running game:
- Set out a number of bean bags in a straight line in front of each player, with equal distance between each bean bag.
- Children must run from the starting line, to the first bean bag and back again.
- Once they are back at the starting line, children must run to the second and back again. This will continue until there are no bean bags left to collect.
- The first player back will be the winner.
