The District Relay

For this relay, there will be 3 different events. You will need to be in a team of 2. The first part of the relay is placing an Oreo on your forehead and to get the Oreo into your mouth with only using your face. The second part of the relay is a candy toss. One participant will hold a solo cup, and the other participant will then try to throw the candy into the cup being a certain distance away. The last part of the relay is one participant will put shaving cream over your face and the other participant will throw Cheetos on to the other participants face while being a certain distance away. This will all be timed, and whoever finishes one part of the relay, all participants will stop and we will move on to the 2nd part of the relay. The volunteer will then add up all the times and see who had the fastest time.

Age Range: Children 5-12 ; 5 teams of 2
