Does anyone have an rainy day activities that could be done inside in a classroom setting with limited space for any age? I teach at a private school with minimal space. Thank you!

Eraser tag

In a classroom, two students have erasers on their heads. I usually find that it is easiest to divide boys and girls into teams. Put them in opposite corners of the room. Call out Boy chase girl. They walk around the desks and the boy chases the girl. Then call out SWITCH and the girl chases the boy. The first one to lose the eraser from the top of their head or to get tagged --the other team gets a point.

Chicken Dance

Kids love to do the Chicken Dance. It is a safe activity that really requires little locomotor movement other than the chorus. For that part I have the students walk about the room either:
by themselves
with a partner
with a swing on the spot with an elbow person.

Desk bicycle

Divide into teams (can include math in this activity). Have students get between two desks and put their hands on top, straighten their arms so their feet are off the floor and move their legs in a bicycling motion. Time them, add the time for each person on the team, see who can go the longest or whatever. It helps with arm strength too. Just be sure that the desks are stable or that another team member hold the desks down so they don't tip.

Desk Bicycle?? Maybe Chairs?

Hi I teach a class of 12 and 13 year old boys, and my first thought on reading about Desk Bicycling was that it sounds very fun (I actually laughed with glee thinking of it!)... however my desks are kind of weak and my boys quite big, so they might break! Am thinking of trying this though on chairs, they could sit, keep feet parallel to the floor, hands gripping the seat (beside their hips) and cycle for as long as possible. This would be hilarious, good exercise and fun for our many rainy days! Thanks for the inspiration!
