PURPOSE

Here's a fun target game where the children have to get a bean bag into a hula hoop that is taped to the ground for points.

SETUP

Divide the class into 2 even teams.  Each team will get 25 bean bags of the same color.  Tape 6 hula hoops to the ground as shown in the image and designate a specific amount of points for each hula hoop.

INSTRUCTIONS


Divide your class into 2 even teams.  Children should form a line as they would in a relay race.  One child at a time will take their turn, then after they go, they must return to the end of the line to wait for their next turn.

When a child's turn comes, they must grab a bean bag from their team and toss it at the hula hoops located at the other end of the room.  If they get a bean bag completely inside the hoop, they will receive the amount of points for that specific hula hoop.

Each team will have the same amount of bean bags, but at the end of the game, the teacher will add the totals from the bean bags tossed to see which team got the most amount of points.

Each team must use their specific color bean bag so the teacher knows the exact amount of points each team received.

MODIFICATIONS


To make it harder, move the hula hoops further away from the children.
