Game description

For this game, every participant receives a carpet tile. Then they take it to the starting line and sit on it. As soon as the team leader gives the signal, the participants have to do their best to get over the finishing line as fast as possible. The challenge is, to never lose contact with the tile and their butt. However, they can use their hands and feet to get ahead. If needed even backwards.


If you have a smaller group, maybe 10 – 12 kids, you can play this game as an individual race. For bigger groups, you are better off with creating teams. This could also be a relay race on their butts. For this implementation, divide the group into two teams. One starts at the finishing line, the other one at the beginning. Once the participant reaches the opposite line, the next kid gets a butt slide for it.


The winner is the fastest participant or the fastest team.
