The first child in each team must crawl to the finish line with their teddy on their back. If it falls off they must turn a full circle before placing the bear back on and continuing. When they reach the other end the next child goes until everyone has had a turn. The first team to finish wins. this can be made more difficult by introducing obstacles.
