Begin play with a seal bladder and caribou bones. If you can’t
find either of these, use a rubber ball and a bat instead.

There are no strikes in this game. Have kids keep swinging until
they hit the ball. Once the ball is hit, runners must circle the
bases in reverse order, which means first running to third base,
then second, on to first and then home. To make a player “out,”
someone must either catch a ball in the air or tag the runner with
the ball. Also, polar bears can snag runners, but this shouldn’t be
much of a problem in most church parking lots.

Play this game with two teams, and let teams bat for 10 minutes
at a time. Or if your group has less than 10 kids, put all the
players on the field and rotate in one batter at a time.
