  2. Loo brush javelin
  3. 10 laps around the garden
  4. Standing long jump
  5. Potato pooping in a bucket relay race
  6. Loo roll bowling

  8. Dribbling a football around loo roll cones
  9. Loo roll keepie uppies
  10. Water race, holding a bucket of water on your head.

The rules

  1. Loo roll shotput
    Place the loo roll at your neck and then see how far you can throw the loo roll. Three attempts allowed
  2. Loo brush javelin
    From a standing position, throw the loo brush overhead and see how far it can travel. Three attempts allowed
  3. Run 10 laps around the garden
    Time each competitor running 10 laps of the garden and see who has the quickest time.
  4. Standing long jump
    The competitor stands behind a line marked on the ground. Three attempts allowed.
  5. Potato pooping in a bucket relay race
    Rules for this are written in the party pack. The potato needs to enter the bucket to count!
  6. Loo roll bowling
    Stack loo rolls to make a pyramid, using another loo roll for the ball see how many you can knock down with two throws.
  7. Tennis Balls in a bucket relay
  8. Dribbling a football around loo roll cones
    Set out five loo roll ‘cones’ in a straight line approximately one footstep apart from each other. Time competitors as they dribble a football in and out of the cones going up and back.
  9. Loo roll keepie uppies
    How many ‘keepie uppies’ can you do? You need to keep the toilet roll in the air by kicking it up with your feet.
  10. Water race
    Complete five laps around the garden, holding a bucket of water on your head. The person with the most water left in their bucket wins. Add obstacles if you want to make it harder!
