So I got the green light on doing a few playground games with the kids during their P.E class and winter camp (thinking far ahead here) and I collected a few slides about playing some old fun games I did back in the day

Included are instructions for
- hacky sack
- capture the flag
-doctor dodgeball

Use a co-teacher to explain if the class is lower levels.

For a hacky sack go here:

I got mine on the gmarket page:

hope it helps someone!

I bought I hacky-sack my last trip home hoping it would come in handy.

Thanks for the inspiration and PPT!

I discovered recently at the EPIK orientation (2014) that you can make your very own hacky sack with a plastic bag and a 100 won coin. It only takes about fifteen minutes.

Just fold the bag in half, and cut vertical strips up the bag until you're near the top (obviously don't cut all the way through the bag or else you will separate the bag in two). Once you've cut several strips along the bag, open up the bag again and place the coin at a perimeter (doesn't matter which one). Make sure that whatever perimeter you choose, the coin is in the center of the bag that is furthest from the strips you just cut. Then, proceed to roll the coin up the bag so that it is completely encased. Using a rubber band, tie the coin to the bag tightly. Finally, rub the strips against the palm of your hand repeatedly, in rapid succession so that the strips become frizzy. You do this to make the hacky sack float better when you kick it up in the air.

Voila, you have yourself a hacky sack!

Kudos to the EPIK orientation staff member, Lina, who showed me how to do this. She is amazing!!

I created a small web course for newbie teachers on Udemy here.
