Description

To encourage the young people to work in small teams and to listen to instructions. Taken from the BB Anchors Pro Pack M-3

Resources

Balls, Beanbags or building blocks in primary colours of Blue, Red, Yellow. As an alternative, squares of coloured card
A hoop or bucket for each team (to put items in)
A large hoop or circle drawn on the floor
Various A-Z items (just a few letters but 6 of each item)

Instructions

Colour Relay
Put young people into teams of 4, 5 or 6 ensuring balance of ability, ages etc

Place all the coloured balls, beanbags etc in the centre of the room in a large hoop, or circle drawn on the floor. Call out a colour, the first boy in each team runs to collect the coloured item, returns to the team and places the item in the hoop or bucket at the front of the team. He then goes to the back of the team. Call out the next colour for the second boy and so on. You could try this holding up the coloured ball, beanbag etc, so that the young people have to watch rather than listen.
