This Game is meant for Cub Scouts.
Place one of each item into each paper bag.
Give one bag to each team.
Patrols line up at start line with cone or marker about 40 feet away.
First person of each patrol reaches into his bag and pulls out an item.
He balances this on the back
of one hand and races to the end of the play area and back to tag the next scout.
Repeat until all items in the bag are gone.
A player can not touch the item with his other hand.
If the item is dropped, the scout either starts over at the beginning or picks it up where it dropped - you decide beforehand.
Sample items to include:
- dollar bill
- cotton ball
- fist-sized rock
- dixie cup of water
- playing card
Each patrol could also have a ruler. A scout can choose to balance the item on the ruler rather than his hand for double points.
