Create a relay race in a classroom hallway, living room, or outdoors in your backyard. I find active games are a great way to get the kids moving when you need to burn some energy at the party. This is a great game for the whole family to play at home too!

The goal is to have the kids compete to be the first team across the finish line.

First, create a Relay Wand with a Valentine’s Day theme. Use a paper towel roll that you can cover with red paper and small hearts. Then pick relay teams with 3-4 kids.

Then make your race track if you only have a small space have the kids go from their team around a chair and back to their team members. The kids could also hop one way to add a challenge. If you have more space add more obstacles to run around.

The first team member runs the track and then hands the relay wand to the next person on the team. Continue this until the last team member races back with the relay wand. 

If you have a larger track you can have the team members space out around the track. When their teammates reach them they get the wand and run to the next team member until the final team member crosses the finish line.

Cut out a heart shape from the construction paper. Then cut those hearts up into small pieces.

Have the kids break up into two teams and line up. The first player in each line puts the ice cube (styrofoam block) between their knees and races around a chair you placed a few feet away.

When they return they give the ice cube to the next player to go. You keep going until all the team members have finished. The first team to get everyone back wins the game.
