  • The first player should run down, grab a lei, put it around their neck and run back to their team
  • Then, they have to transfer that necklace to the player waiting to go next

  • Once the player waiting to go next has the necklace around their neck – That player runs down, adds another necklace to the first one and runs back to the team to transfer both necklaces to the next player waiting to go

  • This goes on and on – adding one more necklace each time they get to the hula hoop and transferring the full amount of necklaces to the next player until the last player has all 20 on their neck and there are no necklaces left in the hula hoop
  • *In hindsight, I wouldn’t have let the kids divide up into groups of boys vs. girls. My almost 6 ft. tall 14 years old was a little too tall for my 9-year-old boy to put the necklaces on. It was a huge disadvantage for them. Height would definitely be a factor in team decisions. 


That’s it! Have a great summer!
