Coming in for a landing!

When searching for some new run-around-indoor-games when I stumbled upon "areoplanes and airports" on this website.
In stead of hoops, I used some orange "circle bases" we had around the room.  The game is simple; have fewer "bases" than children.  These bases will be your "airports" and the children will be the airplanes.  Whenever a child comes in for "a landing" the child on the "airport" has to move and go "land" in a different airport.  When demonstrating the first time I said "coming in for a landing" and so they did the same thing each time, and after this the game became know as "the landing game" to them.
Simple, fun, and takes the edge off of cabin fever.

If you like this game you might also like builders and bulldozers.
