Divide your group into teams.
Give each team a bucket of peanuts with shells.
Place an empty bucket at the goal line.
At the signal, the first person in each team, reaches into the bucket of peanuts and places as many as possible on the back of his/her hand.
The free hand is then put behind the back.
At signal, team members head to the goal line and drop the peanuts into the bucket.
If peanuts are dropped on the way to the goal line, they are not retrieved.
The team who ends up with the most peanuts in their bucket wins!
(If you have checked with parents that no children have peanut allergies, the peanuts could then be divided up and eaten.)
