Heads and Tails
Active Level: *
All participants stand and decide which of the following positions they will select:
HEADS – Both hands on head
TAILS – Both hands on butt
HEADS AND TAILS – One hand on head, one hand on butt
Two coins are tossed and the participants who have chosen the correct combination remain standing. The others are eliminated and sit down.
The remaining participants are able to change their position, if they choose. The coins are tossed again, and more are eliminated, until a winner is declared.
Equipment: Two coins
Safety: Toss coins away from group
Easier: Just use one coin for younger groups.
Harder: A quick game is a good game.
Participants pair up and link right hands with index fingers pointing to the other person in the pair. ‘En garde” signals the start of the game. Participants, still holding hands, attempt to touch their opponents’ knee in the allocated time, while trying to protect their own knee.
Safety: Focus group on the fun of the game rather than win/lose. Pairs need to look out for each other and not play roughly. Spread out in designated space and keep clear of other pairs.
Easier: Shorter time period.
Harder: Use left hand. Longer time period.
