What You'll Need:

  • 3 Cardboard Boxes
  • Tin Pie Pans
  • Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Newspaper
  • Masking Tape

  1. Decorate two boxes to look like trucks, using pie tins for wheels and construction paper cut-outs for doors and headlights.
  2. Make 60 - 100 small "rocks" using wadded up newspaper wrapped with masking tape.
  3. Divide the balls evenly between the two dump trucks.

At the Party:
  1. Divide the children into two teams. Place one dump truck full of rocks by each team.
  2. Place an empty box at the other end of the room, or running distance away if outdoors.
  3. Explain to the children that their goal is to move all of the rocks from their team's dump truck to the empty box without moving their dump truck.
  4. They may use any other method they wish, such as individually running with a handful of rocks, or setting up a line and passing the rocks from player to player.
  5. When you say "Go," the first team to move all of the rocks from their dump truck to the empty box wins.
