Butterfly sprint (in groups)

Mark out a butterfly shape using cones: you need to create the two wings and a centre line for the body. The kids start at the base of the body and can choose to either make their way around the left wing (which means they walk) or the right wing (which means they jog). When they get to the head, they sprint down along the body back to the starting point, where they choose which way to go again: left for walking, right for jogging.
