YoGo Game Octopus
All players line up on one side of the ocean floor. One player is the Octopus (tagger) who can power walk freely. When the Octopus says “Octopus!” all other players swim (power walk w/freestyle arms) to safety on the opposite side of the room. If a player is tagged, s/he becomes seaweed rooted in the sand. Seaweed get to swing their arms and attempt to tag players who are trying to swim to safety each time they cross. Game ends when most players are stuck. Play multiple rounds with a new Octopus each time. For variety, change stroke each round - freestyle, backstroke & breaststroke.
Relaxation Starfish on the Rocks to Waves on the Beach (music)
Rest and pretend to be a starfish sunning itself on a rock at the beach. Feel the warmth from the sun as its shines down. Cool off each time a wave washes over.
