Book/Ball Balance Relay
Sent in by: Jill of BC

Book it!

This relay race is for 6 or more players and should be played in an open area.

To play this game, you'll need two small books that are about the same size and two rubber playground balls. You'll also need to mark start lines and turn-around lines.

Form two teams of at least three players and line up at the starting line.

Each player must race to the turn-around line and back with a ball between her knees while balancing a book on her head.

If the book or the ball fall, the player must stop where she is and put it back.

The first team to finish wins!
