- Lay out an activity area with two markers at one end and a collection of objects at the other.
- Two players stand beside each other next to the markers and play Rock/Paper/Scissors.
- The winner runs to the far end and collects one object to bring back and place down on their empty marker. While they are doing that, the loser performs star jumps on-the-spot.
- If you only have a small indoor area available then make both players exercise on-the-spot, but the winner still gets to place an object on their marker each turn.
- They keep playing Rock/Paper/Scissors with the winner collecting an object each time until one of the players has moved five objects from one end to the other – that player has won a game.
- Change the movement types to vary it from running and star jumps.
Collecting an object: hopping (change legs at the end), jumping like a frog, rolling sideways along the ground, crawling on hands and feet, side-stepping, galloping, skipping.
Exercising on-the-spot: running on the spot, touching the ground and then jumping into the air, kicking their heels in the air, jumping forwards and backwards with feet together.
- Involve more players by turning a series of games into a match – see Make it a challenge below.
