Activity: Watermelon Roll
Equipment: 2 watermelons, 2 footballs (in case the watermelon break)
The first person in each line will roll the watermelon to a line and back. After rolling, go to the end of the line and the next person will roll the melon. Continue until everyone has had a turn.
Activity: Stealing sticks (This is from the North American Choctaw Indian group that resided in the Oklahoma area.)
Equipment: We use bean bags and not sticks; 6 bean bags
Formation: partners stand across from one another with the bean bag in the center; be sure the groups are quite a distance from each other
The object is to pick up the bean bag and run it back to your line without being tagged. Leader says "go" and both players run to the center and STOP. Players try to "fake out" each other and finally one person will pick up the bean bag and run "home"; thus, the other person will attempt to tag them before they get home. A player making it to their line without getting tagged is safe.
Play 2 games and then have one line move one place to their right and they will find a new partner.
