Setup If you are playing outdoors on a blacktop surface, use chalk to draw a large circle in the middle of the playing area. Place the hula hoops around the gym or playing area (not in the large circle).
Game Play Select a 2-4 children to be aliens. Everyone else is an astronaut. The goal of the aliens is to tag all the astronaut. When an astronaut is tagged they must go to the alien spaceship (center circle). The only way an astronaut can be saved from the spaceship is for a free astronaut to and tag them.
When an astronaut gets tired they can make a stop at a space station (the hula hoops). When a player is in the space station they cannot be tagged by an alien. Only one person can be in a space station at a time. If an astronaut is in the space station and another astronaut puts one foot into the hula hoop the first astronaut must leave.
The game is over when only a few astronauts remain.
