What you need: You need scarves or rope.

How to play: Divide children into pairs. Take a scarf or rope and tie together the inside ankles of each pair as they stand hip to hip. Establish a starting line and a finish line.

The rules: At the starting signal, each pair races from the starting line to the finish line while tied together at the ankles.

How to win: The first pair to cross the finish line is the winning pair.

What else you need to know: If you have adults playing, match one adult to each child for pairs.
