PREP TIME– 2-5 Minutes
ITEMS NEEDED– Plunger & Skateboard (1 set per team), Large Room (preferably a gym)
GAME TIME– 5-10 Minutes
PARTICIPANTS– Everyone – Teams of 8-12
After you select your teams, have them line up in a single file line behind the start line. You will need an end line as well. If you are in a gym, you can opt to go half court or full court. If you are not in a gym, use cones to have players go around. The game is quite simple. Each player will be equipped with a skateboard and a plunger. The game requires that each participant have their feet and hands off the ground at all times, only using their plunger to move them to the line (or cone) and back to the starting line. The first team to have everyone make one successful round trip wins the game.
Note: If the plungers are creating too much of a problem, allow them to use their hands or feet (not both) to move themselves through the relay.
Have the participants race to an object by sectioning them off one at a time, essentially creating 10 different individual races.
1. Test the game before you play! Some plungers and surfaces are better than others for this game.
2. Have an extra plunger or two in case one breaks.
3. Spray paint a plunger with gold spray paint. Award the “Golden Plunger” to the winning team!
