Peanut-on-Knife or Bean Race

Two bowls of unshelled peanuts or hard uncooked beans are placed at one end of the room; dads and children may pair in teams or may compete against each other in any combination, by using an ordinary table knife to carry as many beans or peanuts as may be carried at a time to the other end of the room. Peanuts or beans may not be picked up if dropped en route, and the individual or team winner is determined by the most carried to the end.
