Sack race

Sack race

The sack race is a classic party game that has been around forever. Children will love hopping along in their sacks competing against their friends for first prize!

What you need:

  • burlap sacks (these can be purchased inexpensively from a feed supply shop) or pillow cases can also be used as an alternative.

Number of players:


It is wise to conduct a sack race on a soft grassy lawn.

Begin with each player stepping into their sack and pulling it up so they can take hold of the edges.

Before you begin a race allow children to practice hopping in their sacks.

Designate a start and finish line.

Line the children up at the start line and begin the race.

Whoever crosses the line first is the winner.
