Usually geared toward younger kids, a field day is your chance to get older kids involved! Give them traditional games to look forward to for an active day outside.
Let students choose from tug of war, potato sack races, water balloon tosses, corn-hole, etc. You can charge a small admission fee or charge per game. Set up a concessions stand and you can sell merchandise, too!
Don’t forget about the parents. While their kids are running around playing games, they’ll want a shaded area to sit and chat with each other. Set up a tent with a handful of folding chairs and some water.
