Games for 5 years 3 - legged race
By 5 years most kids are coordinated enough to enjoy a 3 -legged race.
You amy need to give them time to practise before the race begins!
you will need some pieces of rope / rags / very long socks.
It is important to ensure that you don't use string or anything too fine which could cut into their ankles.
Then you get them to line up in pairs, they have to put their inside arms around each other and you tie the middle legs together.
They have to walk in step, outside legs together then the inside ones which are tied.
At first you can try a simple race - with running NOT allowed!!
Then once they have got the hang of that you could try a simple assault course with obsticles to go around / under etc...
