The egg and spoon race
This is a perfect example of slow and steady wins the race. In this event that dates back to Victorian England, contestants have to run a course with an egg carefully balanced on a spoon. Careful, no cheating: eggs cannot be hard boiled or stuck to the spoon! To avoid wasting food, you can swap the egg for a plastic or chocolate egg and kids can get to eat the treat once they make it to the finish line.
