How to play the Tunnel of legs game?

If you have enough players, divide the children into teams. If not, then they can be a team by themselves. If you only have one team, you can time them to see if they can beat their last score.
Have the children line up single file with their legs a little more than shoulder-width apart. The tunnel made by their legs should be about the same width along the whole tunnel.
When you say “go”, the last child in the line crawls under the legs, through the tunnel. Then stands in the front of the line with his legs the same width apart as the other children and says, “I’m through!”. Then the next team member goes until they have all made it through the tunnel of legs. You can change what they say when they get through, and if you have a theme, you can make it theme-oriented. For example, if you have an underwater theme, they can say “I’m a big fish”. If it’s a Christmas party, they can say “Ho Ho Ho!”.
The first team to get all the players through the tunnel wins.
