Field day for 2nd grade

I am a teacher in a self contained second grade. My school does not have a P.E. teacher. I am looking to do a field day with different types of activities. Does anyone have any creative ideas?
I was thinking of doing something with sidewalk chalk, some type of obsticle course (we have a big field), any other ideas?
Any ideas will be much appreciated!TIA!

My school has a field day every year. These are a couple of ideas that we have done in the past.

1. water balloon toss (student favorite)
2. water balloon on a sppon relay
3. relay to fill a bucket of water sing sponges
4. line relay where you put the ball over one head and under the next person's legs
5. sack races
6. football toss through hula hoop


You could also do hopscotch with chalk

I'll keep thinking.

rather than competitive. Work as a class to accumulate "X" number of points for a class prize. If they are working together as a team all day, everyone will be happier. I agree with the previous poster, lots of water play activities will be a big hit with your students. What about bubbles? What about a messy snack like popsicles? What about flying a kite? Ask your students and parents for suggestions as well. Play Beach Boy music! Good luck and have fun!

New to the site, but if there is a way I can attach ideas that would be better than trying to explain, but I hold a circle Olympics for 3/4 grade and a Run run relay for K-2. Idea is for cooperation, team work and for the students, teachers and family members to have fun. We also hold a district wide track meet at the end of the year and is another reason to support team work, cooperation and focus on fun rather than the winning. Hope that helps and if you know of a way to attach I can send the info to you. thanks
