Waiter, There's a Monkey in my Soup

Materials: A brown balloon and a paper plate for each player, permanent
markers. Give each boy a blown-up balloon and have them decorate them like
monkeys with markers. Let dry. Create start and finish lines. Divide the group
into teams. The teams line up relay style. The first boy races to the finish line
and back, keeping his balloon monkey perched on a paper plate. He must hold
the plate waiter-style, with the arm up and the wrist cocked back. If the balloon
sails to the ground, the boy must pick it up, put it back on his plate, and finish
his leg of the relay by walking backward. Before each team member starts his leg, his whole
team must yell out, “Waiter, there’s a monkey in my soup!” This continues until each member of
the team has had a turn.
