Smog’s Jewels

Type of Activity: Energizer

Props Needed: Two hackey Sacks, Webbing circle 

Set Up: Lay a webbing circle flat on the ground and put the two hackey sacks/jewels in the middle of the circle.  Ask for a volunteer to be Smog.

Process: The object for Smog is to protect his jewels from being stolen.  The object for all the other participants is to steal Smog's jewels.  Smog guards his/her circle but may not step into his/her own circle.  Neither can any of the participants.  Smog may protect his jewels by tagging those trying to steal the jewels.  If Smog tags someone trying to steal the jewels that person is "out" until the next Smog is chosen.  Watch the strategies begin!  The round is over if Smog's jewels are successfully stolen or if Smog tags everyone.  Then ask for a new volunteer to be Smog.

Variation: For larger groups have multiple Smog’s so they can be distracting of each other.
