Fish Flap is an easy race game that requires a little bit of skill and a whole lot of fun. Before you play the game, cut out a 'fish shape' from a sheet of newsprint for each player.

1. Mark a start line and a finish line about 2 metres/yards apart.

2. Each player will need a sheet of newspaper cut into the shape of a fish and another sheet of rolled up newspaper.

3. Competitors line up behind the start line with their fish on the line.

4. At a given signal, the competitors use the wind from the rolled up newspaper as it is waved over the fish to "flap" the fish from a starting line to the finish line.

5. The first player to flap their fish over the finish line wins the race.

Note: You could run this game with five or six competitors at once, or you could have two competitors each round with either an elimination winner or a best-of-three-races winner. Alternatively, run this as a non-competitive race where every player gets a prize for passing the finish line.
