How to Play: Three Stooges
What you need: You need scarves or rope, blindfolds, ipods, and an obstacle course.
How to play: Set up an obstacle course by laying out ropes to crawl under, tires to crawl over, and objects to go around and through. Divide the children into teams of three. Have the three team members stand side by side and tie together the inside ankles of each outside person to the ankles of the middle person. One of the three players will be blindfolded, one of them will be wearing an ipod and will listen to music so that he won't be able to hear, and the last person will not be able to speak.
The rules: At the starting signal, all teams must maneuver through the obstacle course and back while tied together.
How to win: The first team to make it back to the starting line is the winning team.
What else you need to know: You can use a gag for the player who is not supposed to speak, if you want.
