Game description

This game has been around for a long time. I am sure, already your grandparents knew the game. All you need is a sturdy bag to hop around. If the kids play this in teams or successively is entirely up to the team leader. As a variation to the original game, you could implement some hurdles. On the other hand, a slalom sack race is not all that easy either. If you don’t like hurdles, it is okay for the kids just to hop around in the room. The sack race is a classic and most likely will stay one for a long time to come. Kids have a lot of fun playing it. Ideal for warm summer days.


The first one getting behind the finishing line wins the game.
