Baby Racing

Seeing as it's Mother's Day today, I thought I'd share my favourite mother themed game with you. Baby Racing which essentially involves crawling babies of around the same age, racing towards the finish line whilst being lured by their favourite teddy bear is in fact a popular sport in Lithuana. Last year's winning baby was so in love with his laptop that he beat fellow contestants by chasing the keyboard to the finishing line.

How do we play it?
  • Mark out your racetrack. I’d suggest not being too ambitious with distance at this stage and set out something which is around 3 metres in length.
  • Get one adult lined up with the child at the starting point and the other adult positioned at the end of the track.
  • On the word ‘Go!’, babies are released and race (well, that’s the hope anyway) to their adult partner who is waiting and cooing like a maniac at the other end of the track.
  • The adult at the end of the track is allowed to make as many encouraging noises as they like to entice the baby over but are not allowed to use their hands at all.
  • The first baby to touch their racing partner’s knees at the other end of the track wins.
