Walking the Tightrope

What You'll Need:

  • A 2 x 4 Piece of Wood
  • An Umbrella
  • A Book

At the Party:
  1. Lay the 2 x 4 on the floor or grass.
  2. You can play by elimination or simply by letting the children take turns. Either way, the children must try to walk across the 2 x 4 without stepping on the ground.
  3. On the first trip across, the children should walk while holding an umbrella.
  4. On the second trip, they should walk while balancing a book on their heads.
  5. On the third trip, they must hold the umbrella AND the book.
  6. All masters of the high-wire win a prize! (If playing non-competitively, award a small prize to every child.)
