Today, the children had a sack race.
What Is A Sack Race?
The sack race sometimes called ‘potato sack race’ is a competitive game in which participants place both of their legs inside a sack (or pillow case) that reaches their waist or neck.
Then they have to hop forward from a starting point toward a finish line. The first person to cross the finish line is the winner of the sack race!
A sack race is a popular event in sports days in primary school, as they’re lots of fun, and more exciting than a regular running race.
The Benefits Of A Sack Race
There are lots of benefits to sack races for children:
They are a great form of aerobic exercise.
You can easily differentiate by changing the length of the race.
They require children to work on their hand-eye coordination as they hold the sack or pillowcase up when they jump.
They help children work on their gross motor skills.
