This silly relay game will have your class laughing and cheering each other on as they polish their cooperation skills at the same time! Decorating some eggs to look like turkeys adds a festive twist to the old-fashioned egg and spoon relay race.

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 3rd grade / 5 - 8 years

Before you begin:

  1. Glue some feathers and a pair of wiggly eyes on a few raw eggs to make them look like turkeys.


  1. Divide the class into groups of four or five students. Give each group a “turkey” and a spoon.
  2. For each team, set up a start/finish line and a chair (about 20 feet away from the starting line) around which they will walk. (Be sure the distance from the start/finish to the chair is the same for each team.)
  3. One student from each team will balance her “turkey” on the bowl of the spoon while walking—as fast as she can—from the starting line to her team’s chair and back again.
  4. When she reaches the finish line, she hands the spoon off to the next teammate for his turn.
  5. The first team to complete the relay without dropping the “turkey” wins the game!
