Candy Run Game

1   2

Line children up in a line (this will be the starting line). Spread out a variety of individually wrapped candies on the ground a distance away from the starting line. Give each child a bag with their name on it to keep at the starting line. At the signal all the children are to run to the candy and pick up one piece.

3   4

The children are only allowed to pick up one piece of candy before returning to the starting line. Once they have placed the candy in their bag at the starting point they can return to grab another piece of candy. Play until all the candy is gone or for an allotted period of time.

Mother, May I?

Proverbs 31:28 NKJV

“Her children rise up and call her blessed;

Her husband also, and he praises her”

7-1-2015 3;56;50 PM - Copy (6)The “mother” faces the group. She calls out to someone in the group (by name) and issues one of the following commands:

Take (#) steps forward

Take (#) giant steps forward (usually a small number, due to large step size)

Take (#) baby steps forward (usually a large number, due to tiny step size)

Take (#) forward

Hop forward like a frog, (#) times

Run forward for (#) seconds

Crabwalk forward for (#) seconds

Take (#) Cinderella steps – Twirl forward with index finger touching the top of the head

Open-and-shut the book (#) times – jump forwards with feet apart then again bringing the feet together

Lamppost – lie face down and stretch arms forwards, bring your feet to the point reached by the fingertips

The child must reply, “Mother, may I?” before carrying out the order, to which Mother always consents. However, if the child omits to ask permission they are required to go back to the start.

Freeze Tag

12 13

Freeze Tag
A child is chosen to be “it.“ “It” tries to tag the other players in the game. When “it” tags someone in the game the tagged player must freeze where they are and cannot move. The only way to become unfrozen is to be tagged by another player.

When “it” has tagged everyone and everyone is frozen “it” gets to choose who will be “it” for the next round.

Flag Ceremonies

Pledge of Allegiance

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America,

and to the Republic for which it stands,

one nation under God,

Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

“Arrows, attention.” Used to announce that the flag ceremony is to begin.

“Color guard, advance.” This signals the color guard to advance with the flags, or advance to pick up the flags.

“Color guard, post the colors.” This directs the color guard to place the flag in flag standards, or to attach the grommets to a flag pole rope.

“Color guard, honor your flag.” The color guard salutes the American flag.

“Please join us in saying the Pledge of Allegiance.” (Followed by an appropriate song, quotation or poem, if so desired.)
