Game description

In this funny contest, participants have to try to balance a broom as long as possible on their open palm. As soon as the kids have developed some sense of the difficulty involved, it is easy to increase gradually the level of difficulty which will also add much more fun and excitement to the game. First, they could try to balance the broom on the side of the bristles, and in the second round, they can try to balance the broom on the other side, on their flat palm. As soon as the kids can do that, you can have them balancing a broom in each hand at the same time. In this way, you can expand the game as much as you want according to the children’s skills. Another example would be, to balance the broom from A-B, or to balance the broom for a given time.


The winner is the player who can balance the broom longest.
