Socks in the Box 60 Second Challenge

Youth Sport Trust

How many socks can you pair up in 60 seconds? 

Place unpaired socks five steps away from a box. Players run, match up a pair of socks and place them in the box.

Can you keep trying even if you struggle to match up a pair of socks?

Grab your friends or family and sign up to the Summer Reading Challenge for more active fun.
