    ITT: Good children's exercise games

    Okay. I'm teaching kiddies to kick they're way out of a paper bag, but that's the backseat goal of getting them into decent shape.

    They're kiddies, fourth grade-ish, so 10-12, and I like to start the day off with some kind of exercise game. Last class, for example, we sat in invisible chairs and passed a medicine ball in a circle, doing push-ups as the ball was passed.

    Then we did some "catcher's squatting" while rolling the ball to each other in a circle and doing a full stand-up, lift ball, re-squat, pass to make them balance and use their calf muscles a bit.

    What are some other games that will keep their attention. I only use these for about 7-8 minutes at a time, and then we go into actual drilling, but it helps get them focused that we're about to be exercising. Since they're so very, very bad at concentrating during regular warm-up, and I want to keep them interested, what kind of games do you suggest I do?

    Rules: Running is kinda out. I can do it, but I'd prefer not to, since the kiddies get a bit distracted when the butterflies start fluttering.

    tl;dr: Whip my kiddies into shape with your imaginative games for them to play.

    Have the kids play 'Do your Kata as Fast as Possible'
    Great game for adults too.

    Sadly, I went to Catholic schools, so the only kids games I know are "hide the banana" and "don't tell your parents."

    It didn't get much better in the boy scouts either.

    The zombie game: give a few kids kicking shields, and have them advance on one student like a zombie. The kid in the middle has to kick, punch, elbow and knee their way through them. Pick the guy they attack at random, and have the other kids around the edge of the room in a horse stance or something.

    From a judo instructor teaching adults, but it would work awesome for kids: Assemble kids in a line, and have them crawl across the room as fast as they can, trying to avoid the guys in the middle (you start with maybe two), who are on their hands and feet and trying to take down the crossing kids. Kids tackled join kids in the middle. I think this is called sharks and minnows.

    Wrestling- have someone teach them a solid background in wrestling.

    Follow the leader, using things like duck walks, forward rolls, log rolls, crab walks, and bear crawls.

    I think these are best at the end of a class, not the beginning. It gets them overexcited and they won't practice correctly. Also, if the class or individuals don't behave in class, they can't play at the end. Also, you usually run out of time when everyone was having fun, so they are excited to come back next time.
