Beetles and bugs

Chalk or rope
Bean bags
Physical Activity



How to Play
  • Create two long lines with either rope or chalk.
  • Scatter the bean bags in between the lines so that there is some space in between but not too much.
  • Let the kids know that the bean bags are bugs and beetles and they need to jump to avoid them but they must stay within the lines.
  • Once children have jumped through they can run back to the start and try again!
Change it up / Alternatives / Additional Options
  • Make the game more difficult by placing larger objects for the children to jump over and around.
  • If you have a child who uses a wheelchair, ensure they are able to wheel through the course without touching the bean bags.
  • If you have a child who has a visual impairment, allow them to walk through the course and use a bell or other noise making device to let them know when a bug or beetle is close.
