What You Need: Hula hoops or alternatives

What You Do:

  • Scatter the hula hoops around your small group area.
  • The 1st player stands in the middle of the room.
  • The 1st player says, “I like to [something they like to do].
  • Anyone who likes to do the same thing must quickly move to sit in a hula hoop.
  • The kid in the center also tries to grab a hula hoop to sit in.
  • Whoever is left standing (out of the kids who tried to grab a hula hoop), is now the player who calls out something they like to do.
  • If you have multiple kids who missed a hoop, choose someone who hasn’t been in the middle, yet.
  • Continue for several rounds.
What You Say:
“That was a fun game! We like to do so many things. I really like to eat! There was a giant feast in our story today. What do you remember about the feast?”
