Each team sits next to each other and has taken off their shoes and socks. Using only the toes, a cork is passed person to person (players sit about 50 cm apart). The winner is the team who passes the most corks from the start to the finish where a container is used to collect them. Skipping a player is not allowed.
- Cork Bowling
10 corks are placed in a row 150 cm away from the start on the ground. Using a table tennis ball or a token, the player bowls and tries to knock down the corks. 5-10 tires are allowed. One point is given for each knocked down cork.
- Build a Cork Tower
The group tries to stack as many corks as possible to build a tower. The tower must stand for 5 seconds. For each cork used, one point is given.
- Cork Collection
100 corks are tossed into water (lake, pond, pool). The group must try to collect as many corks as possible within 60 seconds and put them in a container. If no water is available, this game may also be played in the group room, tossing t he corks on the floor, etc.
- Cork Shoot
10 corks are placed in a row 150 cm away from the start on the ground. Using a rubber band and 10 balls (small, made up of paper crushed into a ball), the player shoots the corks. One point is given for each cork that is hit.
- Cork Ships
Using corks, match sticks, wooden skewers and paper, each team builds a ship. When all have finished building their ships, a floating and sailing contest is made. The fastest or the ship that goes the farthest is the winner.
- Cork Toss
3 bowls are placed 1, 2, and 3 meters away from the start. The group must toss 10 (20) corks in these bowls. One point is given for each cork that lands in the first bowl, 2 points for the second bowl and 3 points for the third bowl.
- Cork Transport
A player moves along the course sitting on a board with corks as the wheels. The corks must be moved again and again in front of the board as the player moves forward.
- Cork Necklace
A cork is cut into slices and threaded with a string to make a pretty necklace. Beads, chestnuts, sea shells or small feathers can be threaded between the cork slices to make a colorful necklace.
