Snowball and Spoon Relay Race for Kids and Adults

Supplies: Wooden spoon, styrofoam balls (substitute spoons and ping pong balls)

Snowball and Spoon Relay Race is the Holiday version of the Egg and Spoon race but now it gets harder because the snowball (Styrofoam ball) is lighter and it is harder to control on a wooden spoon.
