Game description

For this game, the number of participants is virtually unlimited. Each kid needs only one marble and a ruler. The objective is to balance the marble on the ruler so that eventually it will roll into a hole on the other end. If a marble falls down the participant has to start all over again. If you want to make this game a little bit harder, ask the children, that while they are balancing the marble they also have to move constantly in one or the other way. Another way would be to implement hurdles, like walking to the other side of the room and back.


The winner is who manages to get his marble in the hole first.
