Egg throwing
In 1322 England, an abbot in Lincolnshire offered eggs to those who went to church. From this tradition came the annual egg throw, where contestants would toss eggs to each other across the river. This can be adapted to using balls covered in slime or soap to make catching a little trickier! Just choose a suitable distance for kids of different ages to join in.
