Labor Day Activities for Kids


Apple Walk Game

Apples are not just for eating with this Labor Day activity for kids. Check out how to play the Apple Walk game, a relay race that will have you working up an appetite!

What You'll Need:

Apples

2 large empty buckets

This is a relay race for 2 teams. For each team, set an empty bucket 20 feet away from the players. The first player on each team puts an apple between his or her knees, runs or walks to the bucket, and drops it in.

The first player then picks up the apple and runs back to hand it to the next player. That player must do the same thing the first player did, and so on until everyone has had a turn. The first team to finish wins the game. Make sure you have plenty of apples to snack on -- after all that hard labor, you're bound to be hungry!
