Peter Eicher of Avalon Youth submitted a group relay game we can all use. Here are the instructions Peter throws down. Enjoy.

To play this game, you will need to divide the group into teams (the number of teams depends on the area you have available and group size).

You will need some equipment for this game. Place empty bowls on one side of the room, and bowls full of dried peas on the other side. Make sure there is an equal number of peas in each bowl. Give each team member a straw.

The aim of the game is for each team to transport a small pile of dried peas from a bowl on one side of the room to another bowl on the other side, using only their straw. They do this by sucking through the straw so the pea stays fixed to the end of the straw. If they drop the pea they must pick it up again using the straw.

The winning team is the one that transports all the peas first.

    This seems like a simple, but fun relay game. Thanks for sharing.

    It can work as a relay. When we actually played it, I put two bowls full of beans (wasn’t sure where to find dried peas) on the ground for each team. Then everyone got straws and we gave them a time limit to get as many beans in the empty bowls on the other side of the room as they could. When possible, I think the mass chaos idea works better.

    You can do this with M&Ms as well – way easier to find…
