socks, cotton batting, yarn, felt, glue and googly eyes. Stuff the
socks with the cotton batting and then place the end of the sock over

Teams will one at a time take a plastic cup (punch equal amount of holes
in the bottom of each cup so that the water will slowly leak out) and
run from the large container to their trough. First team to fill
up their trough wins.
