Duration: 5-10 minutes
Preparation: none

The hand barrow race is an active game for any number of participants.


You don't need any equipment.


The players group in pairs. One of them (A) moves in the position of push-ups, the other (B) takes A's feet. This makes B look like pushing a hand barrow (wheel barrow) formed of A. They can actually move when A "steps" forward with his hands and arms.

The barrows all move to the starting position. After the starting signal, All the barrows move as fast as possible to the finish line. The first barrow to reach it wins the game.

Of course, you can also design a longer track, and for instance switch the roles of A and B halfway.
