I  can think of a few... some quiet: Finger knitting and Cat's Cradle

and at least one active... Yarn Toss (a la girl scouts)

Yarn Toss Game (as learnd in girl scouts and modified by me)

1. Take a ball of yarn and say the name of the girl or boy that you are
throwing it to (or rolling it to), holding

on to the end.

2. Then have that girl or boy say the name of another girl or boy and throw
it to her/him, having her/him hold onto the yarn

as well.

3. Do this over and over until there is no more yarn.

4. Talk about how we are all connected, how important each one of us is, and

how we have to work together to have fun

5. If there’s time and it is not too complicated, play the spider web game
once the “web” of yarn has

been made.

6. Have the girls and boys hold tightly to their yarn, stretching it tight
is necessary.

7. For the easiest version have all of them lower their yarn to just above
the ground. Let each girl or boy try to

cross to the other side without touching the yarn “web.”

8. To make it harder, have all the girls and boys lift the web to waist
level (best for older children and young teens).

9. To make it even harder, have the girls and boys alternate between webs
held low and webs held high (again best for older children and young teens).

10. To make it super hard, have the girls and boys change level on your

The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are
injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there
are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. ~
