Materials: Several plastic buckets with lids
i.e. ice cream buckets
Take a plastic bucket, cut out a circle in the lid, and glue a rubber glove
in its place. This is a grabbing bucket. Have the other buckets filled with
spaghetti, liver, peeled grapes, etc. The buckets
should all be filled with water, and the special bucket should be last.
People get a good scare when feeling for something in the bucket, and
then suddenly this something grabs their hand and pulls down!! The
downward pulling makes the shock even greater than just a grabbing
MUMMY RELAY RACE
Materials: 2 bedsheets cut into 3 to 4 inch
Strips. Tie end to end to make one long strip. (Or use a roll of tissue
One bedsheet for each team.
To Play: Teams need to wrap one person with the wrap as fast as they
can. Then the wrapped person has to run down and around a chair or pole and back to the next
person in line who must unwrap him, get wrapped, and run down around the chair. Continue
until all members of the team have had a turn.
BURIED TREASURE HUNT
Materials: Several items of costume jewelry, toy animals, and any
other object you wish to hide. A large area to hide them in. (Note: you need to
remember how many items you have hidden and the location).
Explain to the boys that in the Land of the Pharaohs, the people were buried with
many things that were important to them, and that in the field it
is rumored that there are things from an old burial ground.
Turn the boys loose to find the treasure. You may also hide
their snack, i.e. hard candy that is individually wrapped.
