Game description

This game will help children to develop a good feeling about strength and distance. For this game, it is recommended that each player has his own marble, and ideally they should all have different colours. Next, with the foot, successively, the kids try to kick the marble as close as possible to the opposite wall. Then the distance from the marble to the wall is measured. You also can play this game with the objective, that the marble first has to hit the wall and then bounce back. Or, alternatively, the marble is not allowed to touch the wall at all. This is very much a skills game, but you also will need some luck to succeed. In all variations, the winner is the one whose marble gets the closest to the wall.


The player who moves the marble closest to the wall is the winner.
