foxes and rabbits

Materials:

bullet

Space to run in

bullet

 12 or more Beanbags or other small markers (clothespins, etc.)

bullet

 3-6 sit-upons, squares of paper, etc.

 

How To Play:

 

bullet

 One player is chosen to be the "mother" fox.  She stands in the middle of the playing area.

bullet

 All of the other players gather at one end of the playing area, behind a designated "safe" area.  These are the rabbits in their hole.

bullet

  The beanbags are spread randomly around the playing area.  These are the "carrots" (rabbit food)

bullet

 At a leader's signal, all of the rabbits must run out, grab a carrot, and return to the rabbit hole without being caught by the fox.

bullet

 If a rabbit is tagged by the fox, or fails to find food, she "dies" and becomes a baby fox during the next round.

bullet

 Continue until all of the rabbits have become foxes.  The last remaining rabbit can become the fox for the next game.

  Variation: Use sit-upons to create small "rabbit holes" scattered around the playing area.  One rabbit at a time can use a hole for temporary safety, but she must still gather a carrot and make it back to the main hole before she is considered "safe" for the round.
