Immediate Preparation (5-10 minutes): Draw two squares about 1 m wide at both ends of the playground. In the centre, draw two parallel lines about 2 m apart. Divide the group into halves and put them between the lines, Team A facing one square and Team B – the other. Provide each front player with a stick of chalk, which also serves as a baton.

How to Play. At your command, e.g.: 'Draw a roof!', the first players run to their ‘houses’ and draw a roof. After their returning, you give another command, e.g.: 'Draw a door!' and so on. If there are many players, you can command to draw a tree, a road, a bicycle, etc. The winner is the first team to finish the relay race.
