Relay Games

Relay games can be a lot of fun and you can make them as interesting as you want. Making the 'baton' can be an activity in itself.

Below are two examples.

Suit Case Relay

What you need:

  • Cardboard
  • Tissue/Crepe Paper- Brown
  • Glue
  • Scissors

We did this relay in conjunction with an Olympic Games theme day. 

  1. We got some old cardboard boxes, sketched and cut out some suitcases with easy hold handles. 
  2. Cutting out some tissue/crepe paper we glue it all over the suitcases.
  3. We stuck some travel stamps and stickers we found on the internet over it to give it some authenticity. Have a look here.
  4. Most of our suitcases didn't last the race as some of the competitors were quite 'passionate'.

Rocket Relay

What you need:
  • Different coloured paper
  • Cello tape
  • Scissors
We did this relay on a space theme day.
  1. Roll some paper into a cylinder and stick it together.
  2. Cut out a small circle and create a cone, this is for the top of the rocket.
  3. Cut out some triangles for flaps on the side of the rocket.
  4. To make this one a bit more interesting I put a hula hoop 'planet' at the end and the runners needed to orbit the planet three times before going back to home base.
