Whether your memories of school sports days are good or bad, as an adult you can have loads of fun recreating (or repairing) them!
If you've got kids this is a great way to entertain them during days off, if you haven't it's an unexpectedly fun way to pass an afternoon in the park.
Holding a sports day:
- Give everyone plenty of notice
Arrange your sports day in advance so that everyone is up for it. Decide time and place and delegate any tasks like refreshments etc.
- Decide the teams
Once you know who's coming divide them up into teams so people get a chance to mix.
- Choose the events. For example...
- Egg and spoon race
- Sack race
- Three-legged race
- Wheelbarrow race
- Egg catching (in teams of two)
- Tug of war
- Arm wrestling
Then comes the medals - let the fun and games begin.
With all that potential for egg on your face, it'll be more adrenaline fuelled than the Olympics!
