Game description

For this version of a relay race, you need to two teams. The kid whose turn it is has to carry three tennis balls which are shaped like a pyramid. The objective is to run to the next player without dropping the balls. However, should he drop the balls, he has to stop and rearrange them again. Only then he can continue. This game teaches kids the right balance between safety and speed.


The winner is the team who first reaches the goal. Another rating could be counting how many errors were made in each team.
