Hula Blockers

While in the waiting room of the pediatrician's office before my son's checkup the other day, I was browsing through an issue of Family Fun magazine.  I came across this simple and fun game using a couple of hula hoops and a bean bag.  Because the kids just got hula hoops in their Easter baskets, I made a mental note to try the game soon at home.  ( I also made a mental note to renew my subscription to Family Fun.  It has TONS of great ideas and I'm not sure why I let my subscription lapse.)

Now, I can't remember what name they gave the game in the magazine, so we decided to call it "Hula Blockers".  The kids loved chanting " Hu-la Block-ers, Hu-la Block-ers" while someone was preparing to throw.  I loved how totally simple this game was to set up and play, yet still really fun for all of us.

All you need is a couple of hula hoops and a bean bag.  Set the hula hoops flat on the ground several feet apart (ours were about 8 feet or so).  

To play, each player stands in their own hula hoop and attempts to toss the bean bag into the other hoop.  The defender tries to block the bean bag from landing inside the circle, by using their hands, feet, head, etc. to deflect it.  

Playing defense!

A point is scored each time a bean bag successfully lands inside your opponents hula hoop.

A low toss can be blocked with your foot.

I'm sure we'll be playing this game a lot this summer.

Usar un bolso de Michael Kors les permite a los demás reconocer que el habitante urbano educado toma la moda realmente con seriedad. Los bolsos de hombro son particularmente refinados y elegantes.
