LS Field Day Activities Descriptions

Putt Putt: Students stand on the end of the golf mat by the team. They get one try to putt the ball in one of the holes. Bunkers do not count. Keep tally marks per team on the big white board. Students then go to the end of the line and sit down. Teams continue to putt until the time is up.

Chicken Relay: Students stand behind the cones or tape by team. The first person holds a ball in between their legs. On go, the first person in each row waddles down to the bucket. They sit over the bucket and release the ball into the bucket. Then they run down to the end of the line. When the person that just went passes the cone the next person should have the other ball between their legs and they may go. The volunteers should make sure there are plenty of balls for the relays to run until all students have gone once. Students should go to the end of their line and sit down so we know they have had a turn. The team that finishes first wins that relay. Relays may continue as time permits.

Scooter Relay: Split class into four teams. Students ride scooters around tape on floor. When they get back to where they started they carefully get off the scooter and pass it to the next student. Then they go to the end of the line. The first team to finish wins. Keep playing until time is up.

Marble Mania: All students take off their shoes and socks. Students stand behind cones by the team. The first student on each team will run down to the inflatable pool. They will pick up a marble with their foot and then drop it on the towel. As soon as the marble is dropped on the towel the next person in line goes. The first person will stop at the towel station to dry their feet. Then they will go to the end of their line and sit down. The team that gets the most marbles in their bucket at the end wins that relay. Relays may continue as time permits.

Fireman’s Relay: Students spread out from one bucket to the other by the team. The student closest to the water bucket dips their cup in the bucket and gets as much water as they can. Then the water is passed by cup down their line and placed in the bucket at the end of their line. The first team to fill their bucket halfway wins that relay. Relays may continue as time permits.

Hungry Hippos: Split teams in half. Halves stand behind the tape opposite each other. The first person rides their scooter on their stomach as the second student pushes them out by their ankles. The student on the scooter gets one chance to grab as many balls as they can with their bin. When they come back to the line, they switch positions. After they have each had a turn they pass the scooter to the next two people in line and sit down at the end of the line. When there are no more balls, the balls are counted and the team with the most wins that round. Play continues until time is up.

Soccer Shoot Out: Split the class in half. Half of the students line up behind each soccer goal. Students take turns shooting into the goal. The team that scores the most goals wins that round. Play may continue until time is up. To make more challenging for upper grades move the cones back and/or have students that just went become goalies.

Egg and Spoon Relay – Divide each class in half. Each half will go to the cones on opposite ends of the field. Each student will have a chance to walk with the egg in the spoon across the field to the same color cone opposite them and hand the egg and spoon to the next student in line. Then they will move to the end of their line.

Batting Practice – Let each child have 2 hits from the batting tee.

Parachute – Have the students stand in a circle.

  • Wave the parachute up in the air and call the names of two children. They will switch places under the parachute as it is lifted up.
  • Throw in the beach ball and have the children bounce it around. See how long they can keep it on the parachute.
  • Have the children wave the parachute with the ball in the middle. On the count of 3 see how high they can get the ball.
  • Anything else you can think of to do with the parachute (create mushroom, walk around merry-go-round style)

Ribbon Relay – Two teams run the ribbons down the field, around the cone, and back. Hand off ribbon to the next child and sit down at the end of the line.

Hoppity Balls – Students sit on the balls, hop to the cone, and back.

Scarf Toss – Students will follow the directions of the leader. They will toss and catch scarves in different ways.

Bean Bag Toss – Students start at the cones. They pick up a bean bag, run to the hula hoop. Toss the ball in the bucket from the hula hoop and run back to the end of their line.

Soccer Shoot Out – Students will take shots on the goals with a soccer ball and keep track of how many goals they get as a class.
