2016 Sick Day for Amos McGee
Teamed Up Animals Tag The animals have to work together to get to Amos McGee so they can make him feel better! Form two equal lines with players in a single file line. Each player reaches his left hand through their legs and grabs the right hand of the person behind them. This forms the Animal Chain. The object of the game is to have each group run around a given point or person and back to a place without breaking. Any time a team breaks, the kids have to run back and start over.
Renamed: Sick Day Tag! One person is "it." This person has to chase the others. When he tags someone, that person “gets sick” and must lay down with both hands and feet sticking straight up. In order for the sick person to feel better, four people must tag one limb each. Once someone has been a “sick kid” three times (this is on the honor system), they are now "it". It's always possible to have multiple people being "it" and makes it crazier when you don't know who to run from!
Who doesn’t love to get their hands a little dirty? This craft is simple but FUN! Fill paper plates with enough paint to dip a whole hand in. Have yoru kids dip their hands in paint and then on the paper. From there, they can keep adding details with their fingers, or use a paintbrush or marker to add eyes, ears, and anything else they might want.
