Crab and Bear-Walk Races

Who won the race? The crab or the bear?


How to play

Which will win?

  • Create a start and finish line somewhere in your home
  • Decide how you are going to race. Pick one of these or create your own:
  • Crab: Sit on the floor with your hands behind you and your knees bent, now lift up your bottom and move along the floor
  • Bear: Walk along the ground with both your hands and feet touching the floor


Anyone can do this - The aim is to try and use as many objects as possible to make a fun and challenging course! If someone isn’t racing, then they can be the umpire!

Why not try?

Suitable For All ages

Time taken 20-30 minutes
You will need
  • Space to be a crab or a bear
Safety As with any activity consider the space and make sure you have enough room that is free of sharp edges!
Challenge Can you become a Wheelbarrow? Have somebody hold onto your ankles as you walk along the floor on your hands!
