Instructions: Each child partners with a parent or another player and finds space inside the grid. Start without a ball and have them walking. Child follows parents or his/her partner. As facilitator shouts change they quickly switch roles.

Variations without Ball: As above but running, skipping, hopping 1 foot, bunny hopping (2 feet), giant steps, backwards, etc.

Progression: Add in a ball. Player in front has the ball. Player behind follows. When facilitator shouts switch, players pass it to each other.

Variations with Ball: Stop, walk, fast, crash, toe taps (even the people without the ball as it teaches the movements, etc.).

Coaching Points: Movement and turning, keep head up, listening, following instruction, and have fun!
