3 Legged Race

A 3 legged race is a great outdoor game for a picnic. You only need at least 4 people and two bandanas or two scarfs.


First you divide everyone into 2 teams. Next you tie each team member’s leg with the leg of the same member so that they are both facing the same side and have a total of 3 legs combined. Finally all teams start at one line and have to make it to the finish line before any other team does.


Winning at a 3 legged race can be tough, the key is teamwork. The better you can work with your partner the more likely you will win. The more you fight your partner the more likely you will, fall down, trip, or do something else that isn’t going to help you.
