Hide-N-Seek. Set your mats up and play a game of hide-n-seek. This gives the little ones a fun place to duck and hide.
Tag. Play a game of tag and use the mat as your “barricade” or “safe zone.”
Dodge Ball. Set the mat up on its side in an accordion shape. If you have two mats, set them up facing each other, if not, one mat will do just fine. Have one or more people hide behind the mat and operatically jump into the air. Another person trys to dodge the other person with a soft ball.
