Game description

Before the game begins, it is up to the team leader to make a few preparations. First, you need to drill two holes into each can and then put a string through each. Make sure the can you are using is strong enough for the kids to stand on it. Once that is done, the game can begin. And this is how it works: The candidate steps on the cans and with his hands he holds on to the rope so that he can walk. You can either make a hurdle race or just to cover a certain distance. Decide on those things before the game begins. The game is played one kid after the other.


The one who receives at the finishing line fastest wins the game. The team leader takes the time of every child and writes it down. This game is best played outdoors as it will damage carpets and floor boards.
