Tin Can Relay Game
2 coffee cans per patrol.
1 of each item for each patrol: string, stick, button, stone, feather, kerchief, ...
Mental recollection, physical quickness.
Have each patrol line up with 5 feet between members.
Starting at patrol leader, each scout counts off so every patrol has a '1', a '2', and so on.
Place an empty coffee can 5 feet behind the last member of each patrol.
Place the other coffee can containing one of each item 5 feet in front of the patrol leader.
The game leader calls out an item name and a number. The scout with that number from each patrol runs to his patrol's can containing the item, takes the item to the other can, and then returns to his position. First one back, gains 1 point for his patrol.
At the start, all items are in the front can, but as items are called, the scouts need to remember in which can the item lays.
