Get active with a family friendly pillowcase sack race. There are endless variations to sack racing rules, so you can get as creative as you like.
-- Individual Sack Race --
Participants will run to the sack, put both feet in and begin hopping toward the finish line. You need one burlap sack for each individual participant.
-- Relay Race --
Each player puts both legs into sack and hops around a cone, or some marked point, and back, tagging the next person in line. To play you need one burlap sack for each participant or team
-- Team Sack Race --
Start with 10 people per team (or an even number); 5 people on each side of the field (or applicable number if starting with less than 10 per team). To play you need one burlap sack for each team.
-- Three-Legged Race --
Participants stand side-by-side and put leg closest to each other in the burlap bag. To play you will need one burlap bag for each two-person team.
-- Variations --
- Add obstacles to the course (make sure they are safe, though). Kids love lawn sprinklers as obstacles!
- Have different age groups.
- Use mixed group combinations (i.e. youngsters with adults/men with women/women with women/men with men, etc.).
