  13.1 DONKEY RACE
  
   Two boys straddle a broomstick, back to back. On signal, one runs
   forward and the other runs backwards about 50 ft. They then run back
   to the starting line, but this time they change positions (forward
   becomes backward runner) then the next two team members go.
   
  13.2 FOOTBALL GAME
  
   One team gets on each side of a table. Each side tries to blow a ping-
   pong ball off the opponents' side of the table.
   
  13.3 EATING RACE
  
   Give each boy two double crackers. The boy who can eat them all and
   whistle, or blow up a balloon wins.
   
  13.4 FIFTY YARD SWIM
  
   Each boy hops on one foot carrying a paper cup of water. First one
   over the finish line wins. (Could also be done as a relay.)
   
  13.5 DODGE BALL
  
   Divide boys into two teams. One team makes a circle and the other team
   stands inside it. The boys forming the circle throw a large ball at
   the boys inside the circle, who are running around trying not to be
   hit. The inside boys may not catch the ball. A ball hitting a boy on
   the head does not count. Only boys in the outside circle may catch and
   throw the ball. Boys who are hit join the outside circle and try to
   hit the inside boys.
   
  13.6 CENTIPEDES
  
   Divide the boys into two teams. Establish two lines about fifty to one
   hundred feet apart. Line the two teams up on the starting line. Have
   the first four (three or five if needed) boys in each line straddle a
   broomstick and with their left hand grasp the stick. On signal the
   centipedes race to the far line, turn around and race back to the
   finish line. The centipede may only advance when all four boys are
   holding the broomstick. Then the next four boys form a centipede and
   continue the relay.
   
  13.7 POTATO JUMP RACE
  
   Establish a start and a finish line. Line the boys up on the starting
   line. Give each boy a potato (ping-pong ball, balloon, etc.) to put
   between his knees. On "Go" see who can jump to the finish line first
   without dropping the potato. (May also be done as a relay.)
   
  13.8 CLOTHESPIN RELAY
  
   Divide into teams. Each team member must run from the starting line to
   a team bottle placed a distance away, attempt to drop a wooden clothes
   pin into the bottle (Each boy has only one attempt to get the clothes
   pin in the bottle) and run back to tag the next team member, who then
   repeats the action.
   
   The rules are to hold the clothespin with a straight arm at shoulder
   height or with a bent arm at waist height (as long as all do it the
   same way. When all the teams are done the team with the most
   clothespins in their bottle wins the game.
   
  13.9 NAIL DRIVING RELAY
  
   Stand one 2x4 block for each team on edge and start two or three 16
   penny nails to the same height in the edge. Place the blocks about
   fifteen feet from the starting line and put a hammer next to each of
   the blocks. On "GO!" one boy from each team races to the block, picks
   up the hammer, and swings ONE blow to drive the nail into the block.
   He then lays the hammer down and returns to his team, tagging the next
   boy in the relay. The race continues, with each boy in turn going as
   many times as it takes for one team to drive all of its nails flush
   into the block. Be ready to straighten bent nails.
   
  13.10 DISTANCE CLOVE HITCH
  
   Using a very long rope and either a tree or a pole, the object of this
   game is to tie a clove hitch around the tree (pole) without getting
   near the tree. Draw a circle around the object that the knot is to be
   tied to and tell the boys that they must not go inside that circle.
   The knot can be tied, but only through the co-operation and teamwork
   of the two boys. (Hint: One boy is a runner and the other stands in
   one spot.) We did this at a Loggers Day for the Boy Scouts and it was
   as much, if not more fun for the adults to try it as it was for the
   boys. It's not anywhere as easy as it sounds ---- TRY IT, YOU'LL SEE
   FOR YOURSELF ... 8-)
   
   I must also thank Indian Nations Council for most of the above games,
   as well as those of my previous post to the list.
