Family TEAM Workout!

Go Solo, or Make Teams!

Grab a deck of cards, pull out the jokers. Each individual or team is assigned a suit. Create a distance to run from start to the full deck of cards, shuffled. Each team or person runs to the deck and chooses a card from the deck. If it’s their suit, they run it back to their start/pile. They run again, or the next team member, to the deck again. If the suit is not theirs they put it in the discard and run back to start before trying again. The first person/team with all 13 cards wins!

Make it harder by changing a rule to run to the deck to be skips, hops, etc.
