  • Sports Trivia Games

  • Egg and Spoon Relay - Divide players into two teams and have each team form a line. Have a member of each team race to a certain point, holding a hard-boiled egg in a spoon, and then return so that the next team member has a turn.

  • Play soccer - Try using a balloon instead of a ball for extra fun!

  • Panty Hose Race - The funniest race you'll ever see! Find out how to play on the Races and Relays page

  • Sock Bounce - - You’ll need a different pair of colored socks per player (hey...this could be a party favor!). Roll the socks up into a ball. You’ll also need a bed sheet. Have everyone hold an edge of the bed sheet, with the rolls of socks sitting on top. Everyone lifts up the sheet together, shaking and waving the sheet (like a parachute game). The object is for each player to try to bounce the other socks off the sheet, and avoid letting the socks get bounced off!

  • Sleeping Bag Race - Line up the sleeping bags, have each person climb inside one, and race across the room by wiggling inside the bags.

  • Pillow Toss - make targets on the floor with large pieces of colored construction paper. Try to toss your pillow on a certain color for points!

  • Outside you could also play basketball, relay races, Frisbee, volleyball

  • Twister!

  • Pinata - use a sport theme pinata. It is easy to make a ball shape pinata! How to make a pinata
