Crab Walk Races.

All you need for this activity is a balloon or playground ball. First, mark a start and finish line. Each participant will line up at the starting line in a crab position (as seen in the image), then you will kick the balloon or ball forward toward the finish line. The first person to cross the line wins.

You can also do this in a narrower space, like a hallway. You would just time how long it takes each person to get to the end of the hallway, and the fastest crab wins! If your hallway is short, you could go down and back.
