Time for baseball!

What you need: small rubber balls and two objects for bases.

Set up two bases about 30 feet apart.

Two of the players are fielders, each covering one base, and the others are runners. The object is for the runners to move from base to base without being tagged as the fielders toss the ball back and forth in an attempt to lure the runners off base.

If a runner is touching a base, he or she is safe. Runners cannot hug the base however; they must run at least every second time that a fielder throws the ball.

Any player tagged becomes a fielder and the fielder who tagged the runner out now gets to run the bases.

For larger groups, consider creating small teams of six or eight children and set up multiple base areas.
