EGG RACE.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR SPECIAL DAYS.





Give each child a tablespoon and a hard-boiled egg. The children form
in line and one is the leader. Each one holds the spoon with the egg
in its bowl at arm's length and hops on one foot, following wherever
the leader leads them.

The leader may take them up stairs, over stools, and any place hard to
reach on one foot. To drop the egg or rest on both feet prevents one
from continuing in the game. She must stay out until the next time
round.
