Get Moving in Groups

If there are a whole bunch of kids looking for something cool to do, you're in luck! Being active as a group is easy and fun. Make sure everyone has a good time, no matter what the score is.

Batter up! Baseball and softball are both great games to play when there are a lot of kids around. And if you like volleyball, then set up the net and get a game of volleyball going. Start a basketball game and take it to the hoop with your friends. Play kickball, touch football, ultimate Frisbee® disc or soccer, and you'll start your heart working.

Have a marathon race to the corner or around the track, and see who comes in first, second and third place. Play double dutch with a jump rope and see how long each person can jump. Or form a parade on bikes, blades or skates. (Make sure everyone is wearing helmets and protective pads before you head off.)

More things to do when there's lots of you:

  • Have a skateboarding contest.
  • Play tag.
  • Play outdoor hide-and-seek.
  • Dance to your favorite music.
  • Set up a scavenger hunt.
  • Take an adventure hike.
