Game description

With this game, it is a different kind of football. All participants stand in a circle. The legs are open, and they have to touch the next person. The own legs serve as goalposts. This time, you do not play the ball with the feet but with the hands. Therefore, everybody really has to bend down. At the same time, everyone needs to try to ward off the ball yet play it through the legs of somebody else. As soon as that happened, the kid has to turn around and participate standing back to front. If the child cannot ward off the ball a second time, it has to leave the game. Therefore, the circle will get smaller and smaller.


The last man standing is the winner of the game. Pinching your legs together is not allowed, this too will render the child to turn around. While this game is very funny, it also can be very messy.
