Teach students the difference between healthy and unhealthy foods while reinforcing the positive effects of exercise. Teams race to collect healthy and unhealthy beanbags, adding the healthy foods to their shopping bag while adding unhealthy foods to other teams’ bags.
Simple and Fun Activity
Divide students into 6 teams and scatter beanbags on the opposite side of the playing area. To begin, students run and grab a beanbag. If they get a healthy one, they put it in their shopping bag. If they get an unhealthy one, they put it in another team’s bag. Teams can “burn off” the unhealthy beanbag and return it after completing the exercise printed on that bag. When time runs out, the team with the most healthy beanbags wins!
Included activity instructions provide additional variations. For example, you could have the beanbags face down, so students don’t know what they are grabbing right away.
The cover of the beanbags is made of high-quality vinyl, making them durable and soft to the touch. Each has a healthy or unhealthy food printed on it. The shopping bags resemble recycled shopping bags used in grocery stores for a realistic feel. They come in Rainbow colors for easy team distinction, with each featuring a different exercise including jumping jacks, jump high, crab walk, run in place, windmill, and lunge. Store everything in the included nylon storage bag.
Pack includes 100 healthy and unhealthy beanbags, Rainbow shopping bags, a storage bag, and activity instructions.
