How it works…

Firstly, you need to setup your grid. Start off with a 3×3 grid, this can be done using hoops or tape/chalk on the floor. Then split the children into two teams and create a start line 3 metres away from the grid. Each team will need 3 items of the same colour (bean bags, quoits of similar) to use as markers for their team.

On the word ‘Go’ one team member at a time takes their marker and places it on the board (i.e. in a hoop) and runs back to their team to release the next team member. Once all 3 markers (i.e. beanbags) are on the grid, the next team member has the opportunity to move one of the markers in an attempt to get 3 in a row. Each team member can only place one marker (first 3) or move one marker and then must go back to their team. This is a fast game which requires quick decisions to be made, the winning team is the first to get 3 in a row. Reset the game and replay, you could always make the grid 4×4 to make it more difficult.
