The Bean Game

The teacher calls out the name of a bean and the children respond appropriately. Possible beans might include:

  • Runner Beans - children run into spaces

  • Jumping Beans - children jump into spaces

  • Kidney Beans - children (kids) hop around holding onto a knee

  • Baked Beans - children lay flat on their backs as if they are baking in the sun

  • Broad Beans - children move around making broad shapes with their bodies

  • String Beans - children move around making skinny, string-like shapes with their bodies

  • Chilli Beans  -  children act as if they are chilly

The teacher may also like to call out 'Freeze' from time to time for which the children should freeze in the position that they are in.
