On the next rainy day, try this twist on the classic pillowcase race. Can you hop faster than your child?


  • Tape or string
  • One pillowcase per player


  1. Mark two lines ten feet apart on the floor with tape or string.
  2. Have each player stand inside a pillowcase, holding its top, at the starting line.
  3. At your signal, have the players jump to the finish line in their pillowcases.
  4. The winner is the first to reach the finish line.
