Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! I hope it is filled with shenanigans and malarky. Here is a fun twist on the typical Easter Egg Race.


Place two baskets at the end of a room, two metres apart. In a line from each basket place potatoes at one metre intervals, an equal number in each line. Arm two children at a time with long spoons with which to pick up each potato in his line, one at a time, and return to the basket. One who carries all without dropping or touching anything but the spoon, wins.
