Hula Hoop Game
Ages school-age

Girl Scout troop leaders are experts at entertaining packs of kids. We reached out to Girl Scout volunteers across the nation, asking for their best group activities. A flood of inspiring stories and ingenious ideas came in from hundreds of troops. Here's one of our favorites.

TROOP: Cadet Girl Scout Troop 1486
HOMETOWN: Kirkwood, Missouri
LEADER: Becky Jones

What They Did: As part of the troop's first backyard camping trip, Becky had the girls play this hula hoop game.

Why They Love This Idea: It's a great, goofy, get-active game that challenges kids' collective brain power. "The girls discovered that they needed to work together and think through the problem, with everyone giving their input," says Becky. "It was their favorite part of the camping trip, and they asked to try it again and again!"

What you'll need

  • Hula hoop

How to play

  1. Ask the kids to stand in a big circle, slip a hula hoop onto one child's arm, and have them all join hands.

  2. They then must find a way to move the hula hoop all the way around the circle without letting go of each other's hands.
