Kickball

7-1-2015 3;56;50 PM - Copy (2)

Use the basic rules of softball and baseball: four bases to run, three chances to kick the ball and three outs to an inning.

The pitcher rolls the ball to the kicker. Bouncing, other than the little bounces that you get when the ball rolls over grass, is not allowed. If the ball rolls over home plate and is not kicked, that is a strike. If the ball is kicked but goes foul, that is a strike.

The fielder can catch the ball and tag the runner, or step on the base, or throw the ball at the runner to make the out. The ball should not be thrown at the runner’s head. If the ball is thrown at the runner and misses, the runner may advance only one additional base. A kicked ball that is caught in the air is an out.

The team that is in the field should space themselves out according to the numbers of players. They will, of course, move in for the smaller players and out for the stronger players.

Capture The Flag

7-1-2015 3;56;50 PMThe group is divided into two teams. Each team has its own territory with a boundary designated between the two. Each team must also designate a spot to serve as a jail (such as a tree). Decide on the size of the designated safety zone around the flag, and where to place each team’s flag. Once placed, the flags cannot be moved, although they can be guarded. Those guarding their own flag may not enter the safety zone around the flag unless in pursuit of an opposing team member.

Once the flag is placed, team members are assigned to guard their own flag or to enter enemy territory to try to capture the other team’s flag. Any player in enemy territory can be caught (by tagging them) and put in jail. Prisoners can be released by being tagged by a teammate, but only one prisoner can be rescued at a time.

A team wins the game by capturing the other team’s flag and bearing it back to their home territory. If a flag is seized but is recaptured before reaching the opponents’ territory, the flag is set up where it was recaptured. If a game must be ended before a flag is captured, the team with the most prisoners wins.

I Wrote a Letter to My Mother… (Drop The Handkerchief)

A tisket, a tasket, A green and yellow basket, I wrote a letter to my mother, on the way I dropped it, and one of you has picked it up and put it in your pocket. Not you, not you, not you, not you …

7-1-2015 3;56;50 PM - CopyThe players stand in a circle facing inward, while another child, the “picker”, walks around the outside of the circle carrying a rag or handkerchief until finally dropping it behind one child. This child then rises, grabs the rag, and chases and tries to tag the picker. The picker tries to return to the spot where the picked child had been standing and stands in that spot. If the picker succeeds, the other child is now the new picker and the process begins again. If the child succeeds in tagging the picker, the same child may return to stand in the previous spot and the picker resumes the process.

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.

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.

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.

Piñata

3-30-2013 10;42;47 AM - Copy

 

      The dictionary describes a piñata as a container broken to get gifts inside. Also as a decorated papier-mâché container of candy or small gifts that is hung from the ceiling and is hit and broken by blindfolded people with sticks.

2 Corinthians 9:15  NKJV    

“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!”

     A human body was the container that housed Jesus, the Son of God, a very wonderful gift to man.

John 1:14  NKJV   

  “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

     Jesus Christ, the Son of God was hung on a cross as our sin offering for our sin. It would have been enough for Jesus to shed His blood for our salvation, however He  provided much more for us. He allowed His body to be beaten beyond recognition for our healing (spiritual, physical, emotional, and much more). Prior to being hung on the cross Jesus was beaten by spiritually blind people, unknown to them each stripe providing for our healing.

Isaiah 53:5  NKJV   

  “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.”
