Getting into the Activity:

A quick reaction game, that’s great for groups to play.

To play this game you’ll need to ask your group to form one large circle. Children will need to be socially distanced where required. The wider the circle the better for this.

A leader should stand in the middle of the circle, they are in charge of the game. Every player, including the leader, should bring both their hands together to form a gun shape. The leader in the middle should randomly point their fingers at one player and say ‘SPLAT’. The child pointed at should duck immediately. The two players either side then need to point their fingers at the person the other side of the ducked player and say ‘SPLAT’. The first person to do this, gets the other player out and they must sit down. (The ducked player can then stand back up).

Continue playing, however the game will get more difficult as players start to get out, as remaining players get spaced out.

At the end of the game, the last two players should then stand in the middle of the room (socially distanced) back to back. The leader should count in numbers from 1. Every time a number is called both players take one step away. This carries on until the leader decides to call out SPLAT. At which point both players should spin around and try to splat their opponent. The first person to do this is the winner.

Play another round. After a while, let one of the children go in the middle and be in charge of the game.
