Play Rattlesnake Relay

3.0 based on 28 ratings

What You Need:

  • 1-4 hula hoops
  • Large flat area
  • Upbeat music with a good rhythm to play in the background

What You Do:

  1. Before you begin playing, explain these simple rules to the participants: (1) the hula hoop must not touch the ground at any time and (2) the circle of hands cannot be broken.
  2. Have everyone join hands in a line.
  3. Have the person on one end of the line place the hula hoop on her shoulder, then have her join hands with the person at the other end of the line to form a circle.
  4. Have each person wriggle and squirm through the hula hoop to help move it around the circle until it reaches the beginning again. Don't let the circle break!
  5. Once everyone gets the hang of the game, introduce a second, third, or fourth hula hoop into the circle to increase the difficulty.

If you have a lot of participants, you can make this game a race! Divide into two even teams and see which team can move the hula hoop around the circle first.
