Swing a fruit in a pantyhose to knock another fruit along the floor. It's a race, for individuals or relay teams.


- a pair of pantyhose/tights
- 2 oranges, apples per person

PLAYERS: 6 or more

AGES: 5 upwards

Anyone can play this game. Great for family parties, kids parties, Christmas and Thanksgiving. Hen parties too. You just need a bit of space to run around with a flat surface.


You’ll need a pair of pantyhose/tights and 2 oranges or apples per person (or if a relay, per team).
Take one orange or apple and place it in one leg of the pantyhose.
Now tie the pantyhose around the players waist (it can go through belt loops) so that the fruit is in front of the person and between their legs.
Place another piece of fruit on the floor between their feet.


On the word go players must use the fruit in the stocking to knock the fruit on the floor from the starting line to the finish line.
If individual players are playing, the first one across the line wins.
If you are playing in teams then it becomes a relay where the pantyhose must be exchanged from team member to team member and the first team to have each person complete their section wins.


This game is best played outside or on an easy to clean surface. Not recommended for carpets!


You can also use tennis balls or potatoes
