How to Play Red Rover
If you want a good way for kids to stay healthy play Red Rover with them. This is a game that has been around for years. First of all you will want to divide the children into two equal groups. Have one group go to one side of the playground and the other group go to the other side of the playground. Have the children stand in a line and hold hands.
One side starts the game. They chant red Rover, Red rover, send (child's name) over. That child then runs and tries to break through two peoples arms. If the child breaks through he or she gets to pick a player to return to their side with him or her. If they do not break through they have to stay at that end.
This game really makes the children want to run hard and try his or her best. It is a great way to get the heart pumping and the blood flowing.
