Game description

In preparation to this game the team leader has to mark out an obstacle course with chairs. The chairs are to be arranged in a distance of several meters. Once this is done, he defines start and finish. The objection now is for the participants to jump over the chairs like over hurdles. Even though this a competition, they fun of the game should always be in the foreground. This game promotes coordination skills in the kids.


If you play several rounds, be creative by implementing different hurdles. For example, in the second round, the participants have to crawl underneath the chair.


The winner is the participant who has completed the obstacle course the fastest.
