Creative Games

Connect 4

Environment

Praised players put a ball on top of their teams cone in an attempt to be the first team to connect 4 (see video).

Behaviours

Praise and reward the behaviours you wish to see from the players. Place value on their effort and line up praise with individual ability.

Variations

Give players the option to add a ball to their scoreboard, or remove a ball from the oppositions.

Splat Attack

Environment

Adding a bib to your teams scoreboard builds your points but watch out for other teams stealing them (see video).

Behaviours

Praise and reward the behaviours you wish to see from the players. Place value on their effort and line up praise with individual ability.

Variations

When all bibs are gone from the middle, allow praised players to steal from the oppositions scoreboards.

Snakes and Ladders

Environment

Incorporating the classic board game to work as the scoreboard for todays matches (see video).

Behaviours

Praise and reward the behaviours you wish to see from the players. Place value on their effort and line up praise with individual ability.

Variations

I think this works best with a number of small games taking place and all teams have a piece on the board aiming to get to the end.

Finding Nemo

Environment

Praised players quickly look under a cone to try and find Nemo and win the game for their team (see video).

Behaviours

Praise and reward the behaviours you wish to see from the players. Place value on their effort and line up praise with individual ability.

Variations

Progress to letting players know that if 'Nemo' is not under the cone you throw that cone away.

Crossbar Challenge

Environment

Praised players get a shot at the crossbar to win a bonus goal for their team (see video).

Behaviours

Praise and reward the behaviours you wish to see from the players. Place value on their effort and line up praise with individual ability.

Variations

You may give players 2 goals if they hit the bar with their less dominant foot. Another progression may be if they hit the bar for a bonus goal they keep going until they miss.
