Cheese Movers

Split the group up into 2 teams. One team will be called the “mice,” and the other team will be called the “cats”. The cats will be lined up on the sidelines of the playing area (you can use poly spots so kids know where they should stand to throw the ball). The mice should be lined up in a straight line at the start of the court/field. On the GO signal, the first mouse will run the piece of cheese (yellow ball or cone) to the opposite side of the area and back to their team. The cats are throwing dodge balls at the mice. If a mouse gets hit below the shoulders, they sit down with the cheese. The next person has to get the cheese and make it back to their team without getting hit! The end goal is to try to get the cheese back to the end line.  If everyone gets out, then switch roles!
