This game is just like Ultimate Frisbee, but . . . you guessed it – played with an octopus.
Purchase an octopus at your local grocery store or fish market. Divide into two teams and play ULTIMATE FRISBEE, with the octopus. If you haven’t played Ultimate Frisbee (Frisbee Football), check it out on the Outdoor page.
Divide into two teams, each trying to get to the opposite end zone. One team kicks (throws actually) off and the other team receives. When a player catches the octopus they can take only 3 steps then they must throw it. The team works their way down the field, passing to each other until a team scores. If the team hits the ground it’s the other team’s ball (octopus actually). If a defensive player knocks the octopus to the ground possession switches as well. Defensive players must give any person already holding an octopus at least 3 feet clearance.
Send everyone to wash their hands or have hand sanitizer on hand right afterward!
