Game description

Each participant is given a sponge at the beginning of the game. If the game takes place inside a building, it is advisable to play with dry sponges; when you play outdoors, use wet sponges. Next, the participants throw their sponges, and another child has to try and catch a sponge. As soon as the sponges touch the ground you are not allowed to pick them up anymore.
