    Super fun game for large groups of kiddos!

    Note that not all students feel comfortable being carried- we implemented a few modifications for those students to help them feel more comfortable and successful in this game.

    Level 1: Students sit criss cross with “jazz hands.” They receive a high five from another ant which gets them back into the game
    Level 2: Students lie down with feet on the ground, two hands up. Two ants grab one hand then drag the student to hoop.
    Level 3: Same as the activity listed

      Loving the Jazz Hands/High-5 option, super accessible for everyone. Well played.
