  1. Sack Race

The sack race is a simple yet challenging birthday party game for kids of every age. Younger children love to jump in the sack to the end and back again whilst older children will start to create inventive ways in the sack to get from one end to the other. The sack race game is one of those party games that children love to play again and again.

Our traditional potato sack race bags are durable and strong. They are perfect potato sacks for adults and kids. The lighter weight contemporary sack race bags are more suitable for younger children to hold and jump.
