String Weaving Game

Materials:
2 spoons, string

Directions:
Have two teams of five boys compete. The first boy starts the race by taking the spoon up his pants leg under his shirt and out of the neck and then passes it to the next guy who does the same backwards and so on. This alternating procedure continues until the string starts down the one in the opposite direction.

The game is both a speed race and competition to see which team can do the weaving with the least amount of string. The best way to insure both speed and shortness is to have the first team through weaving shout that they are through, then the other team must stop. Then add an appropriate amount of string per undone person to the slower team and measure.
