Easter activitiesRolling Knocking eggsEggs together Eggs and spoon racing
Eggs and spoon raceInstruction:• Each team stands in single file behind the starting line and opposite their respective baskets, set in the ground about 5 yards away.• At the whistle, the first player in each line, balancing an egg on a spoon, races around his teams basket, then back to transfer the egg onto a spoon held by the next teammate. The recipient races to the basket, and the first runner hands his spoon to the third person.• The race continues until one team finishes the course. Anyone who drops an egg must run to the starting line for another before resuming.
