Not Our Beanbags!

Suggested Grades



Students will develop an awareness of and practice the mobility needed to run around with and from other children, and throw bean bags.


  • open playing area (gym or field) with a line marking the middle of it
  • bean bags


  • Have students split into two teams and line up at each end of the gym or field.
  • In the middle of the play area line up around thirty bean bags all across.
  • The object of the game is to keep the bean bags off of your side of the play area.
  • Yell go! Students proceed to throw bean bags on the other side of the play area.
  • After a few minutes, yell stop or blow a whistle. Students drop the bean bags where they are.
  • Count the bean bags on each side, the side that has the less number of bean bags win.
  • Play again.
