Games for 5 years Egg and Spoon Race
This is another classic that is still fantastic fun!
You will need eggs and spoons!
I recommend hard boiling the eggs (place in cold water, bring to the boil and boil for 10 mins) as this reduces the mess!
If you place them in cold water then bring to the boil you reduce the chance of the eggs cracking – no one wants an egg that looks different!
Have a start line and a finish line the children have to line up with their egg on a spoon (the spoons need to be approximately the same size).
Shout, “On your marks, get set…GO!”
On go the children have to race to the finish line.
If they drop their egg they have to go back to the start line!
This will need to be supervised by beady-eyed adults, as the ways they can find to cheat are quite amazing!
(I have known one boy to try to stick his egg to the spoon with boogies!)
