Game description

In preparation for this game put two A-frame ladders in a distance of maybe 11/2 -2m. Then put the wooden boards in between so you get a small bridge. It is up to the team leader to make sure that the ladders are secured and do not wobble. Because, if they fall over with the children on top, there might be injuries occurring. To be on the safe side, you could put foam mattresses on each side of the bridge. As soon as the bridge is built and all safety measures are in place, the game can begin. The objective is to balance on the board from one end to the other, it is advisable not to play this as a contest to avoid any occurring problems with a dangerous behaviour of the kids.
