(50 votes. Push a star to rate! )

Children hop like a Kangaroo while balancing a ball between their knees in this race to the finish.

Number of participants: 1+
For:
Intensity level: Medium
Preparations: none
Equipment: Tennis Balls (or like-sized ball)
 

Determine a starting line and a finish line in a large outdoor area.  Players are to begin at the start line and place a tennis ball between their knees. Each player will jump like a kangaroo to the finish line while holding the tennis ball in place between their knees. If a player drops the ball while hopping, they pick it up, place it between their knees, and continue on in the race.  Any player caught moving without the tennis ball will have to start at the beginning again.  Any player who moves forward by walking or any other manner that is not jumping and hopping will need to start at the beginning again.  The first player to hop across the finish line while holding the tennis ball in place wins the race!

*For younger children, a soft, plush toy can be used as a replacement for a tennis ball.
