Pick of the Week: Egg and Spoon Race

Fun without the mess!

Play the field-day favorite without the mess!

Egg and Spoon Race

Why we love it: Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned egg-on-a-spoon relay? But who likes cleaning those sun-dried yolks off of the pavement? With this plasticized, sanitized version of the game, students can even play indoors! If a child drops the plastic egg, the plastic smiley-faced yolks are revealed but can be easily reinserted in the egg for the next round.

Over easy, yet sunny side up: The game is so simple that even preschoolers can play. It will help enhance their fine motor skills, balance and coordination. But it is such a classic relay that it can be incorporated in older students’ team building and game playing and will bring a smile to their faces.

Change it up: Turn your students’ memorization learning into a team game with the eggs and spoons as mere props. Grab your mathematics flash cards or spelling list and have students first answer a question before dashing with their egg to the end of the line. Divide the class into teams and encourage their speed with both learning and egg carrying.
