Thursday, Aug 11: Chuck the Chicken

This game involves stuffed chickens and Hula Hoops. This game is similar to ring toss. The object is to make the chicken through the hoop as far away as possible. We will start at this distance and each time take one step back from the hoop. There will be _ people competing at one time.

Friday, Aug 12: Cup by Cup

I hope you all came prepare to get a little wet because we are playing a water game! Players will be divide into 2 teams. Players in each team will stand in a straight line and given 1 cup. The player at the front of the line will have their cup filled with water. The goal is to get the water to the end of the line player. Only catch is, you have to pass the water over your head and the player behind you has to catch the water in their cup and then they will pass over their head, and so on. First team with water in the last person’s cup, wins!

Saturday, Aug 13: Hot Potato Happy Meal

Children sit in a circle. They pass the potato around the circle while music plays in the background. If you drop the potato, you are out. When the music stops, the person holding the “hot potato” is out. The last person is the winner of the Happy Meal. We will not pass the Happy Meal around for safety food purposes. 3 rounds – 3 happy meals.

Sunday, Aug 14: Solider/Sergeant Says

The Solider who is the potential recipient from the Flag Retreat Day is the designated Simon, while the kiddos are the players. Standing in front of the group, the Solider tells players what they must do. However, the players must only obey commands that begin with the words “Solider Says.” If Solider says, “Solider says touch your nose,” then players must touch their nose. Whoever disobeys is out.

Monday, Aug 15: Limbo

One by one, each of you will stay on your feet and go underneath the bar without touching it. After everyone has gone under, we will lower the bar one notch. The last person to make it under without touching is the winner.

Tuesday, Aug 16: Snake in My Boot Relay

There’s a snake in my boot! It’s your job to grab the snake (don’t worry, they don’t bite) from one boot and into the other. You will be split into two teams. In true relay fashion, one member from each team will go to one boot, take one snake out, and put it in the boot by your line. Once the first person finishes, the next can go. The first team to transfer all of the snakes, wins!

Wednesday, Aug 17: Musical Squares

Get your dancing shoes on! This game is best as musical chairs, but for safety purposes we will use colored paper squares. Pieces of colored construction paper taped to the ground will be the resting places when the music stops. The child who gets both feet on first claims the spot, no pushing or shoving is allowed! One square will be removed each round.

Thursday, Aug 18: Sponge Relay

We will split the participants into two teams. Each team will have two buckets and a sponge. The goal is to transfer the water from one bucket, to the next, using the sponge. In true relay fashion, each team will send one member at a time to dunk the sponge in the bucket, and squeeze it out into the other. After the team member is finished transferring the water, the next teammate can go. If one team has more members, the team with fewer can send people twice. The first team to fill their bucket to the indicated line, wins!

Friday, Aug 19: Freeze Dance

Think you can stop on a beat? We can put that to the test with a game of freeze dance! We will play all of the best songs so you can show us your best moves; however, when we stop the music, you must stop too! Hold, or freeze, in whatever move you are in. Once the music starts, you can get back to grooving.

Saturday, Aug 20: Old McDonald Bean Bag Toss

All bean bags must be tossed underhand. Each player must stand behind the toss line when tossing a bean bag. If a player’s foot crosses the toss line when tossing a bean bag, his/her points for that toss are not counted and turn is lost. Distraction or interference with opposing players will result in lost turn.

Sunday, Aug 21: Hula Palooza

We want to know who can hula-hoop the longest! Each contestant will start hula hooping at the same time, if you drop your hoop, you’re out!
