2 or the small objects to take.
Split group in half.
Number scouts off on each team.
Draw a goal line for each team about 20 feet apart.
Place the 'bacon' object at the center of the play area.
Leader calls out a number and the scout with that number on each team runs out to steal the bacon and bring it home.
If the scout gets the bacon home without being tagged, his team gets a point.
If the other scout tags the scout with the bacon before he gets home, his team gets a point.
Can call multiple numbers to have multiple players from each team active.
Can have multiple bacons if using multiple players at once. Alternatives
- Have a staff for each team and use a beanbag for the bacon. When a scout is called, he grabs the staff and uses it to sweep the beanbag home.
- True/False. Have a red and a blue bacon, one for true and one for false. Call out the number and then ask a true/false question. The scouts should retrieve the correct bacon. If a scout returns with the wrong one or tags the scout with the wrong one, then his team loses a point.
- Using the True/False, just go down the line asking questions instead of calling out numbers.
