Game description

For this game, you will only need as many chairs as there are participants as well as a large open space. For fairness reasons, make sure you are using the same type of chair for all the children. Each contestant sits on a chair and tries to hop to the finishing line. Needless to say, they are not allowed to touch the ground with their feet. If someone, even by accident uses his legs, he has to wait a little or has to move his chair back a bit. Those penalties are best decided beforehand together with the kids. Besides the fun, the game also promotes coordination.


The winner is the candidate who reaches the goal first.
