Type/Purpose: Food/Messy, Obstacle Course/Race/Relay

My favorite activity for the summer (and it really works any time of year) is the American cheese race. To have this race, each person sticks a slice of American cheese on his or her forehead and races to see who can get it into his or her mouth first. Be sure to have a trashcan ready, and explain that you don’t want the youth to actually EAT the cheese. Who wants to eat cheese that’s been stuck on your forehead? (Or that has hit the floor 40 times?)
