Game description

Each participant whose turn it is comes to the start line and receives two chairs. The objective is to get from A -B, only using the chairs. He is not allowed to touch the ground in any way. To get to the finishing line, you have to put one chair in front of the other. You can do that sitting, kneeling or standing. If the chairs are not too heavy, and the contestants are really skilled, they could try, using the chairs like stilts and get to the finishing line that way. This game promotes physical coordination and dexterity.


If you have only a small group of kids, they can play successively. With a large group divide them into two or more teams and have them compete against each other. You could play it also as a relay race. This way the kids get a crack at the game faster.


The winner is the player or team which arrives at the finishing line first.
