4-6 years

Organisation

  • Place lots of obstacles or domes – mines - inside the playing area
  • Divide the players into 4 groups, one at each side of the playing area
  • The players must dodge the ‘mines’ as they travel from one side of the playing area to the other
  • Gradually increase the number of teams travelling at the same time
  • Vary the exercise by getting the players to move through the grid sideways or backwards
  • Introduce a scoring system where players start with a number of points and lose one each time they touch a mine or another player

Key Points
