Sugar Cookie Medals You'll need three food colors to decorate these cookies. We used turquoise, yellow, and orange pastes; other colors can be used instead. We turned these edible treats into medallions that were hung with ribbon, but they are equally delightful displayed on a large platter.
Red Wagon Slalom Stand colorful foam pool noodles in gallon buckets weighted with sand (or soil or stones) and set up in a zigzag pattern. Fill a wagon with small water balloons. Kids must pull the wagon around the outside of each bucket without spilling any balloons.
Balance Beam Kids set a good pace and, using all the swagger they can muster, get across the two-by-four balance beam in no time. Simply lay an 8-foot-long two-by-four on the grass.
