Game description

The Journey to Jerusalem is a classic game which can’t be missed at any birthday- or children's party. If you do not have enough room to put up chairs for all children, you can play this game easily in the pool. Whether it is the pool in the garden or a public swimming pool, both options are fine. All the team leader really need is a DVD player and some upbeat music. After all the music is the marker for the kids to know what to do. As long as the music is playing, the kids walk along the pool. As soon as the music stops, everybody jumps into the water. The last person arriving in the water will be eliminated.


Since it is somewhat difficult to recognise who is the last one jumping into the water, you can tell them to swim to the other side of the pool and climb out of the water. The last person arriving there will be eliminated.


There is no real rating. The team leader could keep tabs on how is out last. IN any case, the last person remaining in the pool wins the game.
