Cops and Robbers

Every afternoon I pick my children up from the bus stop and I get a rundown on that afternoon's game of Cop and Robbers.  This simple game has become an absolute favorite at my daughters' school and I love it.  Not only are they running around getting exercise for twenty minutes, but they are also socializing and learning teamwork.  Of course there are some days that the games just doesn't work in their favor, but that teaches them sportsmanship.  All around, it is a pretty good game for them to play daily.  I am so thankful that their school hasn't eliminated recess time because along with the much needed exercise and socializing, they are grabbing some fresh air and sunlight.  Recess is very important part of a student's day and Danimals is working hard to get our children active and healthy.  Have you all heard about Rally For Recess?  By working together with the other parents and teachers, you could win a $20,000 playground for your school.

How can you help your school win?   From now through February 8, 2012 whenever you purchase Danimal’s products, you will be able to find codes on the packaging. Collect the codes from the packaging and then sign up online and enter in all of your codes. You can also send your codes in by mail if it is easier for you or your school. Throughout the contest you can visit to check out the Leader boards and play fun games.  Is your school winning?

I'm showing my age here, but when I was in grade school we were either playing Charlie's Angels or Star Wars. Everyone used to argue over who got to be Kelly and no one wanted to be Sabrina.

I really loved playing four square, hopscotch, or jump rope!
