A kids color run!

DS was super scared of having the powder thrown at him and he started crying!(Its dried cornstarch that has food coloring in it)
After he noticed the other kids getting into it then he started having fun.

Would your kids do something like this?

ETA- A color run is when you do a race(laps in this case) and when you reach check points a bunch of colorful powder is thrown at your clothes and you are suppose to come out a giant colorful human afterwards lol but since this was for kids they did it with stuff that wont stain unless wet.

DD probably would but what's the point, just throwing it around at each other and getting messy? I mean that's fine too.

My 9 year old, yes...My 3 year old doesn't like being dirty, so probably not.

Well you do laps and as you reach certain check points they throw the powder at you to get color on your(you are suppose to wear clothes you dont care about getting messy). Then after 3 laps they got to just take handfuls and rub it on their clothes.

Baltimore had a giant one for adults and you came out of that a giant colorful mess! It was crazy.

It was just something for kids to get motivated to move and exercise.
