Kids want to move! This sack race will burn pent-up party energy and get lots of laughs along the way. Decorate plain potato sacks (found at online party supply stores) to suit the party theme. Big felt cutouts give these sacks party personality. Cut out felt in desired shapes; use fabric glue or fusible web and an iron to adhere the shapes to the sacks. Give each child a potato sack. Line the kids up in a grassy area. At the starting signal, have kids hop down a marked path (include a few curves to add a little challenge) to the finish line. Keep the path clear to prevent injuries.
Editor's Birthday Tip: Decorated sacks make a fun favor to take home at the end of the party. Let kids decorate their sacks using fabric paint. Offer stamps or stencils to paint on designs, or let their imaginations take over the design work. Allow time for the paint to dry.
