Note: Older children may enjoy a good, old-fashioned egg toss, but this game is not as suitable for younger children.
What You'll Need:
At the Party:
- 1 Egg for Every Pair of Children Playing
Divide the children into teams of two. Have the teammates stand across from each other, forming two lines with a space of two or three feet in between. Hand an egg to all of the players along one of the lines.
At the start of the game, the players holding the eggs toss them gently to their teammates. The teammates on the receiving side must catch the eggs, take one step backwards, then toss the eggs back to their teammates. Play continues with the teammates stepping further and further away from each other with every toss. As this space widens, some of the teams will drop their eggs; if their eggs break, they are immediately out of the competition.
Determining The Winning Team:
The last team still in the competition after everyone else has dropped out wins the game.
